Customer Question
Its Transmission failed, 1,100...

Its Transmission failed, 1,100 miles. Is this a lemon? Why won't replace the Transmission with new one?

Mechanic's Assistant: When was your transmission fluid last checked?

Ford performed the initial service at 600 miles in February 2017.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your 600?

The

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 600 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Was brought in December 2016. I took it to the Ford Dealer..Two days ago when Dash light appeared.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

If the dealer installed an other than new transmission should expect a new warranty

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
