The aircon would have been repaired then.. mine went at 70k and according to the guy that repaired it (Ford wouldn't do it under warranty at the time), it was a very common fault and that they're good for about 90k. I was also one of the lucky ones where the fanbelt didn't snap when the aircon packed up.
I did a box at 120k, and the reco place I got the new one said this was also a common fault. I was driving around in 3rd gear all day. 1st and 2nd gone, the box was slipping alot when cold a couple of months leading up to it. 2nd box was starting to act up as well, that's when I decided I had thrown enough money at the car and got rid of it.
