Nice Car - Bad Transmission

ReviewWow! I read the review from rater JSC1525 and saw I wasn't alone. For a car in this price class, I should not need to put a new transmission in the car at 120,000 miles. As with JSC, my check engine light is always on too. The dealer and 2 indepentent shops don't know why. The passenger side airbag gave a warning light indicating it might not deploy at 80,000 miles. One would think a safety part that is never used should have a lifetime waranty on it. The good news - it is very comfortable, looks nice, has adequate power and lots of amenities.
Best FeaturesThe front seats are best in class. I also use it like a pickup truck with the seats folded down. Location of controls is great. My Grand Marquis is not nearly as well laid out.
Worst FeaturesA transmission that functions would be nice. Location of oil filter (and size) stink.
