2002 Focus ZTS
Automatic

For some reason now my transmission has been shifting hard and can no longer sustain the OD.

Was wondering what might be causing this, my only guess is the fluid and filter. (but I am not a mechanic)

Of course, the standard 3 year warranty. Crap, I was hoping to avoid being without my car.

and BTW, the secretary shows me the bill for replacing the tranny, it cost about $3500CAD including new tranny and labour! Happy to know that it cost me nothing!

since we're talking about trannies here, ,y wife has a 94 ford probe with an ATX. when she drives on the freeway, the car has trouble picking up speed past 55. its like the transmission doesnt want to downshift when she floors it. this only happens at higher speeds, but the car is perfect normally. OH YEAH, the car only has 64,000 miles. I'm thinking a bad transmission but if anyone has another idea...
