I agree there are a few people (for lack of a better term) that stink up this forum. Totally classless as well as clueless peolple that couldn't muster half a brain between all of them. They try to sound like they know something, but it's so easy to tell they don't. I'm sure by now the OP knows who they are. I say good choice OP and if there is anything the rest of us can do to help please continue to ask in the intellegent polite way that you did!

Yep, I along with many others have been watching what many mustang owners have endured. I was very informed when I purchsed the car about a month ago about the possibility of tranny problems. I decided to roll the dice. If I got one that has the tranny issues, then I would cross that bridge when I came it and trade it on the challenger and cut my losses. If, on the other hand, I did not have the tranny issues, then that is great for me. So, far, just over 2K on the odometer and no issues. Clunky...well, yes, but, hell, on the other three mustangs the transmission was always a beast. No problems yet, no grinding, no skip shift on me yet...nothing. I will admit the temps have been warmer, above 60 or so around here, so we'll see what happens in November..Until then, drive on.. So, do what is best in your mind. Roll the dice or no..but, with whatever car you end up choosing to buy, the chances they will ALL be perfect are slim I would bet. There will always be some that are just crap and slip through quality control.

Slower traffic, keep right...

You can't leave it alone. Please don't get me cranked up again. The "cease fire" has been nice.

I'm just stating a fact... that the 2011 and 2012 transmission threads are there to support owners having problems.

Don't go getting all cranked up again. LOL
