If you are correct in presumptions RussellW, and based on the Australian auto manufacturers trends of manual gearboxes you probably are, then we have probably have a weak auto tranny. I know it's expensive, and I know I've noted before that Ford are under no obligation to use a transmission/gearbox that be can handle more than thier factory outputs, but it would be great to see a TOUGH, and WELL SHIFTING Manual/Auto in the falcon range. Holdens T56 6 speed is a clunky chunky box, but id swap smooth shifting cogs for a bit more inteneral durability any day of the week.
