The thing is that the transmission was only one infuriating aspect of that car. Even if the transmission gave no trouble, there would still be suspension noises, creaking sheetmetal in the door hinge area, peeling chrome (razor sharp!) on the steering wheel, and before I got rid of it, squealing bearings in the heater blower motor.

It cost me a lot to trade in that car, but it was worth every penny. I hated it and it was making me miserable.

The Subaru that replaced it now has 14,000 miles on it and not a single issue.

I would start saving if I were you.

Of course that is one possibility of many.

Believe it or not, I think folks like TooOld HELPED in making Ford issue the extended warranty. I don't think TooOld should leave (or be banned) the forum. If you like your car, you'll continue to like it. If you hate your car, you'll continue to hate it no matter what anyone says here.

Welcome to the Internets...

My wife doesn't want to hear what I have to say either. What about your husband? You get the same from him?

Now you're learning! Very good grasshopper. I'm giving you a forum reputation boost. By the way, how do the forum reputation points work? Do we get $100 off a new Focus for every point we've accumulated?

(Technically just a Focus Fanatics troll. I think. Am I counted as a troll when writing web services for my employer? I hope not.)

Actually the seals have their own kit with all the hardware that you use to order individually. The clutch is still in it's own separate kit. Sorry for the confusion.

Yes.

Not hard to comprehend. It was great on car I test drove. Not so great on the car I purchased. Great for a long period of time after the flashing of the firmware.. It goes on and on..

In comparison my last three new cars never had trips to the dealer for any thing othere than maintenance schedules.. Its not like I want this thing to not work as it should as I had experience d it working properly.. I honestly don't enjoy loosing my car for a day or two at a time....
