He shouldn't sugar coat his opinions. He should just come out and say what he thinks.

I was subscribed to this guy, but he gets tiresome quickly. Too negative, too much swearing.

My parents have one of these, would be a nice little car (has all the bells and whistles) if it wasn't for the lemon trans. Trans has had the clutches replaced twice, and an entire new unit installed for the third attempt at a fix (all under warranty). Dad has tried to trade if off, but the word is out, so resale value is extremely low. The Ford dealer has been good to them (always have a loaner available, and doing what they can to repair a [censored] product), but not good enough to offer a full refund laugh.

Wow....

Though the three ring part was funny...

A friend of ours has one and has had it in 8 times for transmission problems and the worst part is they can't sell it because too many people know of the problems and they wouldn't want to be that kind of person and stick someone else with the problems so they are stuck taking it in every so often for Ford to muck with it again. It's really sad that they haven't revised parts / fixed the issue.

Codogan is great.

DCT are the worst of both worlds...unless you are driving an exotic.

I like when he talks about "That [censored] of a transmission starts to fail again" or "Shaking like having an epileptic fit" I died laughing. grin2
