- Poor gas milage and the ever present transmission problems
I purchased a used Ford manufacturer's vehicle that was driven by their Georgia regional executive. Being a manufacturer's vehicle and one used by the regional executive naturally this should be a near perfect vehicle, well maintained, in good order, no problems in the least that is what the dealership GM said. WRONG, WRONG WRONG. Experiencing the same transmission problems with the six speed automatic that many of you are. Several trips (8 total in 2 months) to the dealership and no fix in sight. Reprogrammed, replaced modulkes, scratching heads and still problems. Tired of hearing "we followed the issued technical bulletin", still no fix. Looks like either a major Ford recall of all these V/8 six speed automatic lemons or fight it out in arbitration. Remember the old slogan, "Quality is Job One", well Bill Ford and his company engineers have failed miserably on this "FIX OR REPAIR DAILY" vehicle. I will never buy a Ford vehicle again and list from a die hard Ford fan of 40 years. Bill come on over and take a drive.
