V8 Lurching Transmission

I've owned a lot of Fords and this is the worst. The V8 with the 6 speed transmission lurches from 1st to 2nd gear and again when slowing it feels like you've been rear ended. Ford has issued a lot of TSBs and none can fix the problem. Dealer won't or can't do anything for you, and Ford is playing the deaf ear. Mines been in the shop 6 times, had a Ford engineer confirm the problem, and they still won't buy the darn thing back. I'm going the Lemon Law route to get them to take the lemon back. Too bad for Ford!

None at this time.

Worst Features

Stop using that transmission. Deal with the owners that have it. Or continue to lose hordes of customers.
