    Hey guys. I need your help. I just bought a used 2017 Ford raptor. It has 35K miles. Driven it for 2 weeks and noticed that it has started down shifting REALLY HARD between 5-4-3 gears. So much so my wife and eight year old asked “ What was that?”
    It’s been at the dealership over a week and they just called saying there’s not a problem and it’s just the way the 10 speeds are.
    What do I do?? I know there’s a problem and the transmission tech doesn’t sound like he’s going to do anything.

    The truck will downshift a bit hard in sport mode. Are you in auto or sport mode?

    Mine was doing that and they needed to replace the valve body. It has been smooth since then.
