I wouldn't necessarily call 250 people, many of which have just jumped on the wagon, a "common problem". Of the 250, reduce the number by people who may have over-modded or abuse their trans. The 250 number drops further. How many Mustangs has Ford put the 3650 in? Maybe 100K per year? After you answer that, come up with a percentage. I think it is pretty small in Ford's eyes when it comes to contemplating a recall. I think the "blinders", as you say, are on you and many people in this thread who constantly hear of only problems with the 3650. Anyone who posts anything positive is told not to post. When you read something over and over you start to beleive it is truth. That is what is happening in this thread. That is blinders my friend. I am not saying that the 3650 isn't problem free. Obviously there are people with issues. I just think working within the dealer warrenty service realm will work the best. For every person on this forum who has been "denied service because the tranny is acting normal", there have been twice the number of people who have found dealers to do the service work. If one dealer won't look at it, find one that will. If you happen to live in an area with only 1 Ford dealer within a 60 mile radius (compalints which I have heard here before), maybe you should have not chosen a Ford. GiddyUp!
