The seals inside my Ford Escape trans failed at 80,000 miles. This has never towed anything, normal driving.
The first quote for repair was for over $5000 !*!&^%$!!!? because of the all wheel drive I was told they needed to remove most of the lower half of the vehicle. I eventually paid $2000 for a repair at the dealership. I was told they were able to repair it without removing the unit.
How often do Ford transmissions fail?
It is unacceptable to have the drive train fail at what I would consider moderate mileage. Apparently "Ford tough" is just a marketing department gimmick.
