2004 Ford Freestar S 4dr Minivan (3.9L 6cyl 4A)
transmission failed at 45000 miles without warning. The vehicle was impeccably maintained. The failure was not do to neglect or abuse. Of course, this was after the warranty was up, (barely), so Ford is hanging us out to dry. So much for rewarding customer loyalty. (This was the 9th new Ford I have bought in 23 years.)
Issue a recall on the defective transmissions before someone gets killed when theirs fails without warning.
