2002 Ford Focus SVT Question: transmission replacement
Answer #1shadetreeauto September 13, 2010, 10:50Master
the dealer should have known about this problem b4 he sold you this car.if it is indeed a gearbox failure some advance warning would have been evident to anybody who drove this car.Replacement cost will be high because its a svt model.go to a tranny shop and they can give you the bad news.

Ford Had a TSB Tech service Bulliten on the trans. I got mine replaced for free along with the whole clutch setup. Check with local Ford dealer to see if it was completed. Warranty charge was over 6k for the trans
