The transmission modulater is terrible.
It hangs up in gears or just sits in a
big dead spot and nothing changes. The
dealer "pinged" the unit but other than
that T.S. I had to accelerate quickly to
complete a merge manuever and almost got
hit because the transmission just
refused to shift down quickly. Ford has
had problems with this for years and
there is no excuse for this. I'm
getting rid of the truck.
I was totally happy with my purchase of
this truck through a non SVT Ford
dealer. The local SVT dealer manager
was a pompus jerk and there is no way I
would give him my business.
Like the truck and look forward to
buying the new 2004 edition with 500 HP!
More Power - better transmission - 5
speed with quicker kick down. Lower the
body on the frame - way too much room
between the top of the tires and the
wheel well opening.
