Crack in Transmission... Am I Wrong for Wanting....
Hello everyone... this day is starting off like garbage and to make matters even worse I got an email from Ford this morning regarding my cracked transmission.
See... the truck came to me with a crack in the transmission housing. I noticed the oil on the axle and shocks with only 40 miles on it. I was under it reading part numbers off the springs and axle to a friend in KC the first hour I had. I did not think anything of it, my thoughts were it was over serviced at the factory or it came off the transport.
Well that was not the case... at 800 miles and after finding a puddle on the garage floor I took it to the dealership to find out it was cracked. They emailed Ford and the fix is to replace the housing only! So with 800 miles I am going to have a rebuilt transmission!!!
I want a new transmission and not a rebuilt one..... am I wrong for wanting this? Everyone is telling me they should give me a new truck, this I know is unrealistic... but a new transmission it not!!!
