4 "repairs" which basically consisted of re-flashing the tranny. Gave up. This car is going down the road in spring...I've had it.

are you leasing the car or paying for it? how have you convinced the dealership to buy-back the car?

I bought it as I put on a ton of miles a year. So far 45K miles since new in 6-2011...8 trips to dealer for transmission and I've given up. Don't even get me started on MyFordPieceOfCrapInTheDash

Darn, you beat me! 40k miles here. Same clutch issues as you, but MFT isn't that unpleasant. Though, it plays well with my phone.

Add me to that list. Just a couple of months of ownership, but nearly 8,000 miles now and not a lick of trouble. I honestly enjoy the transmission overall and generally spend most of my time in "S" shifting it myself.
