Some 2009 Escape and Mariner vehicles built before 3/5/2009 equipped with 2.5 liter engine and 6 speed automatic transmission may exhibit a rough idle.

ACTION
Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition.

SERVICE PROCEDURE
  1. Reprogram the powertrain control module (PCM) to the latest calibration using IDS release 59.8 and higher or 60.01 and higher. Calibration files may also be obtained at the website.

Too soon to tell since problem was intermittent. I still feel various degrees of vibration when stopped at a red light, but so far not as harsh as before.
