    2005 Mustang V6 under warranty needs a new transmission. Dealer says the transmissions are not in production. Is this true? Premium Care warranty requires genuine Ford parts not some aftermarket substitute. What should the dealer do to replace the transmission?
    I can't believe that there is not a new transmission somewhere in the continental US that can be shipped to the dealer.

    Were you able to get it replaced? I believe that, by law, manufacturers have to maintain parts for at least 10 years after production.

    Assuming you mean the manual because the autos are available everywhere or can be rebuilt by most any shop. Ford stil

    The manual transmissions (T5s) are no longer in production but they have stocked ones sitting. It's generally around $4000 from a Ford service center for a new one. Or you can get a rebuild for $3500. Don't do that, though.

    Find a reputable transmission shop and have them gut your T5 for the Ford Racing World Class upgraded T5 components. That along with a nice clutch (Centerforce or Spec) will set you back around $1900 to $2200 installed-ideally. You will have an awesome shifting transmission that will last forever. MUCH better than the stock T5, cheaper and less hassle than a 3650 swap out too.

    After researching on the internet and calling several dealers found 5 Ford remanufactured automatic transmissions.
    The dealer did find one after looking for over a week. Thanks to all who responded.
