To be more specific I mean the automatic transmission. I drive a towncar and its very solid.
WhiteThunder is my wife's car which we received with 5k on the dial. It's just very surprising that a vehicle with such low miles could have so many problems and not have a recall (maybe there has been and I just haven't come across it yet). In the next week I'm going to take it a local trans shop and ford to get a better idea as to how to fix the problem if it can be fixed.
