Eletronic transmission requires a software upgrade
done by a dealer who knows how to do it.
Classic of Mentor was the one who fixed
the banging into 3rd issue that everyone
seems to have. Not crazy about the
marriage of Ford drivetrain with this van. The
V6 needs to rev freely to get a full van
moving, and as a result MPG is less than
expected. Fuuny that a leading consumer
magazine rated this so highly with all the
complaints I see about the transmission and
Seats are so easy to deal with, and van is
nimble for it's weight. Handles a lot of
payload without stress.
Lose the Ford Taurus engine and stick
with something more basic and more torque.
Recall the van for the known problem with
the transmission software so people don't have to
buy a new one later. It's so much
smoother after the update.
Spend the money for a third rear seat
headrest. Better quality sound.
