I don't think the trans guy has the kind of inside information to make that judgement. If Ford HQ told him that even new transmissions were doomed to fail, then every Focus and Fiesta being sold now will fail prematurely and Ford will be bankrupted from class action lawsuits for knowingly selling millions of vehicles worldwide with a built-in self destruct (although most Chrysler products from the 1980's had that 'feature') . Even if this was the case and they knew it, they certainly wouldn't let that information leave the boardroom.
