POWER TRAIN

6/16/2016 - ELKHORN, WI
I HAVE BEEN DEALING WITH TRANSMISSION ISSUES SINCE I BOUGHT THE VEHICLE. THE FIRST TIME IT HAPPENED I WAS DOING 50 MPH AND IT SHIFTED OUT OF GEAR. THIS WAS QUITE DISTURBING. I TOOK IT IN TO FORD AND THEY TOLD ME IT JUST NEEDED THE PROGRAM UPDATED. THEN DURING THE WINTER IT WOULDN'T GO INTO GEAR AT ALL, NOT FORWARD, REVERSE OR ANYTHING. ONCE AGAIN I TOOK IT IN AND THEY SAID IT WAS THE PROGRAMMING. THEY PROGRAMED IT AGAIN. SO BACK IN FEB IT HAPPENED AGAIN, AND I DID THEN RECEIVE A LETTER STATING THERE WAS SOME ISSUES, SO I WAS GIVEN A 100,000 MILE WARRANTY ON FIXING THE ISSUE. WELL I TOLD THEM TO REPLACE THE TCM, BUT ONCE AGAIN THEY LOVE TO REPROGRAM. SO MY OLDEST SON IS IN NEED OF A VEHICLE AND HE WAS DRIVING IT UP IN MADISON WISCONSIN ON THE MOST CRAZY FREEWAY AND IT DECIDED TO LOSE THE POWER DOING MORE THAN 50 MPH. MY SON WAS SO STRESSED AND WAS ALMOST HIT BY A SEMI. I HAVE HAD IT WITH THE REPROGRAMMING. I HAVE EMAILS AND CALLS PUT INTO FORD AND I AM NOT ASKING FOR ANYTHING BUT A FIX OR TO TRADE IN AND START OVER. THEY DON'T WANT TO DO ANYTHING FOR US AT ALL. I GUESS THEY WANT SOMEONE TO DIE FIRST BEFORE THEY FIX ANYTHING.

TOOK MY CAR IN FOR A RECALL ON THE TRANS/CLUTCH (MY CAR IS AUTOMATIC) . LESS THAN 3 MONTHS LATER THE TRANS WAS GRINDING HARD, SLIPPING AND STALLING WHILE DRIVING. I TOOK IT BACK IN. ITS BEEN ABOUT 3 MONTHS AND MY TRANS IS STARTING TO ACT UP AGAIN. FORD SAYS THERE IS NOTHING THEY CAN DO ABOUT IT BECAUSE ITS ACTING LIKE THEY KNEW IT WAS GOING TO. THAT FORD SOLD A BAD TRANS AND ITS THE "CHARACTERISTICS" OF THE TRANS.
