2014 Ford Escape SE 4 Cyl 1.60L

Transmissions & Drivetrains

I have a 2014 Ford Escape and it don't seem to shift right

I have a 2014 Ford Escape with 105,000 miles on it and when I first take off from a stop sign it will bog down and it hesitates going at first. This is like the 3rd time it's done it in a month, it also shifts hard into second gear. Just seeing if you had an opinion on what's going on . I'm not sure if my transmission is going or if I should change my transmission fluid or what I should do?

When was the last (most recent) transmission fluid change?

There is a drain plug and a oil level check plug - on the side of the transmission - but no access to the filter unless you remove trans and split the case open.

Stupid design and idea in my opinion.
