Transmission Failure
By Dora Sweigart on


2006 Ford Five Hundred SE 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl CVT)


With 68,000 miles, the transmission went out. The cost to repair was $4,200. Now the air conditioning is going out. I will not buy another Ford product.

There ought to be something we can do, as the people, about this transmission problem. I have had my car almost 2 years now and my transmission is slippin and hesitating. I actually knew better not to buy a Ford product because my grandfather always told me to stick with Chevrolet. Ford stands for Found On Road Dead, Fix Or Repair Daily....etc.
