Update on Ford transmissions.

I just received an up date from ford on the transmission for my 2011 Ford Escape. Ford is going to replace the transmission on their dime (or $40k) however you look at it. I guess the problem is it took them week to make the decision and it will take another week to get the tyranny. Then a couple of days to put it in. IF I was some place I didn't like I would need to stay there a couple of weeks, spending my money waiting,. Travel home and back, not cheap. Rent a tow dolly and get it home, we did. Not good options. For to third time.
Do not tell me not to blame Ford, they created this monster then told me I could tow this thing 4down.

Congrats(?)

We read about towing our Escape (Hybrid CVT)...and the associated horror stories

So, despite having almost all the gear needed to flat tow, we have always used a tow dolly. Ford was optimistic about flat towing the standard auto and CVT, and some years were reportedly approved to flat tow, so failures really were their fault IMHO.

Best luck
