Summary of Complaint

WHILE AT A STOP LIGHT ON A BUSY STREET MY CAR JERKS AND THEN GETS QUIET, WHEN THE LIGHT CHANGES TO GREEN I HIT ON THE GAS PEDAL AND THE CAR DOES NOT MOVE, NO MATTER HOW HARD I PRESS, I TURN ON MY EMERGENCY LIGHTS AND AFTER ABOUT 3 MINS THE CAR FINALLY MOVES BUT WHILE DRIVING ONCE AGAIN I HIT ON THE GAS PEDAL TO INCREASE SPEED AND IT DOES NOT WORK, I DECIDE TO TURN AROUND IN A SMALL PARKING LOT AND TAKE IT HOME AND WHILE DOING THAT THE CAR DOESN'T REVERSE, I GET IT BACK ON THE ROAD AND IT JERKS AND JUMPS TO THE POINT WHERE I JUST HAD TO PARK IT AND CALL A RIDE.

ALL OF THIS AFTER I HAD THE ECU FLASHED TO FIX THE CODES, THE ENTIRE ENGINE AND HEAD GASKETS REPLACED, THE FUEL PUMP SYSTEM AND TRANSMISSION FIXED BY FORD. SO I TOOK IT TO A MECHANIC TO GET IT DIAGNOSED AND THEY INFORM ME OF MULTIPLE PROBLEMS SUCH AS A NEW THERMOSTAT AND AIR BAG DEPLOYMENT ISSUES BUT THE MAIN PROBLEM IS THAT I NEED A NEW TRANSMISSION AGAIN, UNFORTUNATELY THE CARS VALUE IS NOT WORTH WHAT IT WILL COST TO FIX THE TRANSMISSION AGAIN.

Summary of Complaint

I'VE HAD TRANSMISSION PROBLEMS SINCE PURCHASING THE CAR. TWO DAYS AGO THE CAR WOULD NOT GO INTO REVERSE AND THE ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON - IT WAS STUCK IN THE GARAGE AT THIS TIME. I WAS FINALLY ABLE TO GET THE CAR TO REVERSE AND THE LIGHT WENT OFF A FEW HOURS LATER. YESTERDAY THE CAR, AGAIN, WOULD NOT REVERSE AND THE ENGINE LIGHT CAME BACK ON. THIS TIME IT WAS STUCK IN A PARKING LOT. AFTER MANY ATTEMPTS, SOME OF WHICH LEAD TO THE CAR NOT STARTING AT ALL, THE CAR FINALLY TURNED ON, AND REVERSED AFTER ROUGHLY HALF AN HOUR. THIS MORNING I TOOK THE CAR TO WEBB FORD IN HIGHLAND, IN FOR REPAIRS AS THE TRANSMISSION HAS A 100,000 MILE WARRANTY. THE DEALERSHIP SAID THEY ARE BACKED UP FOR OVER 2 WEEKS AND WOULD NOT EVEN LET ME LEAVE MY CAR. THE NEST CLOSEST DEALER IN CALUMET CITY, IL IS NOT TAKING TRANSMISSION WORK AT ALL. NOW, AFTER LEAVING WORK, MY CAR WILL NOT GO OVER 15MPH WITHOUT JERKING AND CHUGGING AND IT SEEMS THAT I HAVE NO WAY TO GET THE TRANSMISSION FIXED EVEN THOUGH IT'S UNDER WARRANTY BECAUSE NO ONE WILL TAKE MY CAR.
