I had this happen to me when I first got my 2007 MKX. They said it was program (computer) related and just needed updated. Appeared to fix the problem, however, now my car is in there with major transmission problems. (at 80,000 miles).

Do you folks with the transmission problems have AWD or FWD?

I have an AWD. They're still tearing down the transmission today to tell me if what they originally think the problem is. Supposed to know later today.

Now the WHOLE transmission has to be rebuilt. They are quoting me $6,100 and that was AFTER they discounted parts and labor.
This is not acceptable. Will never buy a ford again!

Because no other mfr ever has a transmission fail after 80K miles.

Get a second opinion and quote. That seems high.
#99 of 113 2008 MKX LEMON

Ford is well aware of this problem. I had my 2008 MKX back to Ford ~ 15 times for brake & transmission problems (leaking fluid, bad seals, slipping in gear, etc.) They replaced seals, the PTU (2X) , rotors, pads , shoes on the brakes, etc.
Filed a complaint that it was a LEMON and got rid of it under the Lemon Law. Now have a 2010 Lexus RX-350 - no problems. Just bring it in for routine maintenace, oil changes, etc.
It is a shame, nice looking car, Ford has been making cars for how long? what can I say - lesson learned.

How did you go through the Lemon Law (not familiar with it). What did you get back from it?

I called 1-800 MY LEMON. If yoyu Google " Lemon law" you will come up with all sorts of info depending on the state in which you live. We got back ~$6K
