Faulty Chinese-built transmissions plague new Ford Mustang

Faulty Chinese-built transmissions plague new Ford Mustang

Justin Hyde The 2011 Ford Mustang debuted last year to glowing reviews, strong sales and swaddled in American pride. But over the past several months, hundreds of owners have complained of broken Chinese-built manual transmissions a problem Ford has yet to rectify.

Hahahahaha yessss..

Reminds me of this tool on FB that said the Mustang was better than the Camaro since the mustang uses "only detroit built transmissions".

He never replied when I pointed out that China isn't in Detroit.

The only thing that keeps me from liking the new mustang is the chinese transmission. If it had a Tremec (LIKE THE GT500 DOES..what a crap cost-cutting measure to use these chinese made POS's) I would love it and want it more than **** near any other vehicle on the road.

From what I've read this transmission they're using has been around since 2002. Then it was in the Ford Transit..bolted to a 155HP 4 cylinder..same issues. Then in 2006 to the Land Rover Defender...165HP...same issues.

Why they thought it'd be a good idea to bolt it to a 400HP V8 is beyond me.

EDIT BTW:

According to the guy who made that video Ford didn't use the Tremec because everyone else is using it...and it would make the Mustang cost more than a Camaro.

Yeah, I'm glad Chevy had the Camaro wheels made in China, not the transmissions.

Still legal in 16 states. It's happy. It's fun. It's Happy Fun Car.
Do not taunt Happy Fun Car.
