I guess if you bring your checkbook the lawyer might show some interest. I also think going up against a company like Ford would probably be a losing proposition. For you, not the lawyer.
I would appreciate any comments.
An assumption? I am not the only one with this issue - why do you think there are multiple hundred page threads on this transmission? Not that it matters. I'll just file a complaint with the BBB, NHTSA, etc. and fix it myself. But my old clutch will not end up in a junkyard - I'll want everyone to know if I had to replace my clutch myself.

Anyway, the car is at the dealer today so we'll see what they say.
