I have a 2000 Ford Focus I picked up for a beater/commuter car. It is a nice car for its purpose. I just dropped it off at the dealer today to get the transmission looked at. It has not been going into third or fith gear like it should. I thought first off that it was the senquinizers (spell check). I thought that it could be a shifter linkage bent or out of alignment also. Anyway They called me back with the marvelous news of $1100 to tear it apart and see what the problem is. I am so glad now that I paid $1200 for the extended warranty when I bought it. Looks like they will be replacing/rebuilding the trans. So now I am down to one vehicle out of four. Granted the 67 F-100 is in pieces no fault of its own. My 90 Blazer is in need of being reassembled No fault of its own either. The 05 2500HD is going strong, but at 24,xxx miles it better be. Oh well it is under warranty and I am off work the next few weeks anyway so why not LOL.
