The issue with the Transmissions is very simple. When someone buys an automatic they expect it to drive like an automatic. If the individual had wanted to drive an auto that drove more like a manual with a learning curve of sorts then they would have bought a manual. The average consumer is much less informed than those reading these forums and rely significantly on the reps hawking the cars for knowledge. Much of the time the test drives only cover the best case driving scenarios circling a couple blocks with little variation in driving conditions. Understanding fully the differences in how this transmission works(and even Fords website call it an Automatic) is just not being translated to buyers.Report it
I fail to see your point here. You are claiming people do not understand the automated manual transmission. You are failing to read that the seals are leaking and oil is dripping down onto the transmission clutches. This is making the transmission clutches slip. Is that is your definition of people not understanding the transmission, or your failure to see the problem everyone is reporting? Guess your working in the service department at Ford because you sound just like them.Report it
