Ford Motor Company / transmission problems

1 MA, United States Review updated:

i had a problem with my transmission on my 2004 f350 at 30, 000 miles- ford would not pay for the problem they agreed to pay half due to the fact that the 3 year warrentee was up and not my 36, 000 mile warrentee. they replaced it with a rebuilt transmission and i was out around 2500$ and now at 68000 miles it started having problems so i brought it to the dealer and they told me my transmission was "as good as dead" for the second time .i spoke with the ford customer relations center at [protected] with the problem due to my truck--and they told me there was nothing they could do with the second ford transmission that had failed - they are completely use-less to call - i was over my warentee by 1900 miles - i own 8 ford trucks from 350's to 750's and i am woorried about possable promlems in the future with these trucks and with no help from FORD MOTOR COMPANY - there customer service is useless and now i am going to be out 5000$ for a new second transmission -

    Buy a foreign make and find out that 3yrs is 3yrs and that they will not do a damn thing to help.You are probably one of those people who spend all of their money at the local cheap oil change place and expect a dealer to go out of their way to help when something major happens.Sounds like a commercial vehicle that some yahoo is beating the crap out of or has a snowplow bracket mounted on the front end.The rest of the year is spent dragging overloaded trailers around town.Feel lucky you got any help at all and quit complaining

    Hello: I agree with the truck owner, not the detroit yahoo with all the Mouth, he sounds like a Ford Stooge! I have a 2004 Ford Freestar van, that my transmission let go at 85, 900 miles with no warning! Bad torque converter, like I have read about, that has happened to hundreds of folks on these vehicles! If you make a defective product (Please have the guts and ethics to make it good!) This is not Ford's ideology. Save a few bucks today and lose many customers in the future! I have loved my Ford Freestar since the day I bought it, It is a pleasure to drive and the ride and power of a luxury vehicle, and the gas milage on the highway is 27-29 mpg. I never anticipated a problem like this, with no warning! Ford's customer service rep was curt and abrupt, (Nothing we can do!) I have many Ford driving friends, and there is nothing I can do about not spreading the word about Ford's Carless attitude after the sale money has lined their pockets!
