That sounds like idle speculation from the likes of former resident troll Allyy.

Now mind you I've not experienced any of the specific problems that some others have had, but to discount the experience of those who have had no issues with the gearbox just because a few were flawed is bad logic.

Do some people have faulty units, certainly it stands to reason that no product produced by man is ever 100% without flaw, especially when mass produced in large quantities. Now how much of this is a user percieved error state that doesn't really exist due to a preconcieved notion that an "automatic" must behave the same like tsquared's inane thesis leading to people judging something that's doing its job as intended as junk is another matter entirely.

Why should something different ever be expected to be exactly the same as what has come before? Where's the innovation, the drive for knowledge, et al?

I wonder if he is happy with the three serious recalls on the Escape within two months.
