It shouldn't happen.
Agree 100% that it shouldn't happen and should be resolved by Ford.

No matter the price .....

It seems that finally almost everyone here is in agreement that these transmissions have serious problems .... and it's not just an isolated few

Its a LOT of them ... and a lot of different problems. And it's been shown that previously 'good' ones can quickly go bad.

Ford really needs to get on top of this ... pronto.
