I am not very happy with the whole transmission problem and I see a few of the customers on here are or had the same problem I am going through. My cousin told me about this problem AFTER I bought it. thinking about doing a rebuild but not sure if it would be worth it, what do you all think?

I bought this car as a second car for fun, first off although it's nice and super solid, flaw the transmission, why overdrive transmission is when the transmission runs faster than the Engine. Seriously I don't understand why, but I suppose some like cruise control. The car is a 3.0 engine type it is strong so don't expect a 100 percent smooth ride. However, it's got kick mine is at 281,xxx and runs really well. The core components are simple, but useful and reliable. All and all you may need to replace the transmission a few times, but thats all you will likely have trouble with. That amount you save in maintenance will cover the tranny when it needs service overall solid!

I bought mine in 2000 from the Original owner, an older man who is my next door neighboor. I have tricked it out with NEW paint job, Limo window tint, Performance tires... The car gets AWESOME gas mileage, at 37 mpg after having it tuned up a few months ago, and has 120,000 miles on it now. I turn heads with it. ONLY Major repairs its needed has been a new radiator, and 2 fuel pumps... Someone STOLE the AC system out of it, and I recently had a NEW AC system put in. I love the car.

I picked this black Acclaim 3.0 up new for 15 grand. I took my newborn son home in that car and he's almost 11 now.He wants to keep the car and learn how to drive on it! I have a new 2005 Ford and the kids want to ride "Blackie". I have 110,100 hard driven New york City miles on it. This car has never failed to start in all the starts I've had in ten+ years. I had a new tranny at 30,000 (under warranty), but I love this car. It's great in the snow and the A/C cranks in the summer. I have a tape deck but I haven't had a tape in eight years. Oh yeah, a new Maaco paint job 4 years ago when my son washed the car with a brillo pad. Hope it keeps going, beats a car payment!
