All I know is, if I ran a company I'd manage it to ensure something good went out the door, and provided warranty options that covered all components. If I had to subcontract, I would hold them responsible for their issues as well. Since branding is everything and being a larger company doesn't give out a carte blanche...

Having said that, since that's a basic generalization, I've read enough to feel very comfy with Ford - they have replaced transmissions as needed and did not charge the customer.

if something big happens, I do think Ford would do the right things. I just hope nobody dies because of a design flaw that was pushed out the door, one seemingly small but built up over time...
Well, I'm not so depressed about it - it is what it is. I'm hoping Ford is right and these issues will not affect overall reliability or parts lifespan, though I can't help but have doubts each time I hear the grinding and rattling as my car shifts though 2,3,4. If something big happens, they'll have to do something for us if everyone starts having major issues at aome point.
