Me 2 guys. Its horrible. Mine is slippin now, but its got 60k on it as for miles, so I am careful w/ her cuase I dont need her dyin now. My boss will pay to have it fixed which is a blessing considering I use her for work, but still I dont wanna have to ask him to until that day comes, when It does though, I think I will ask him if we can go 50/50 on a performance tranny!!!!!!

my first focus was an automagic zx3. never had a single problem with the tranny slipping. then once i got that diablo chip, it made it all the better. one of the better automagics i've driven.

If it's slippying when you put it in reverse that is normal and I think Ford needs to do something about it. I'm almost at 50K and no problems at all except I just hold the brakes for an extra second when I put it in reverse to keep it from slipping.

No its Slippin cuase I killed it. The Chip did make the thing great. I love my Chip and thats prob why my tranny is slippin cause I floor it all the time, well used to, I loved the fact that the chip makes the gears change so muchl ater than they normally would, that really gets the rpms way up there and gives you some power. I love my Chip think it was one of the best mods I did to my car thus far
