How to fix the transmission

ReviewEletronic 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
Best FeaturesSeats are so easy to deal with, and van is nimble for it's weight. Handles a lot of payload without stress.
Worst FeaturesLose 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.
