Transmission line break.

Rear brake system default.

In the shop now - reason unknown.

General Comments:

This is a beautiful car and one I have wanted since they came out. It handles beautifully. It is the most expensive car I have owned and am still working hard to pay for it. I have, however, never had to take a car to the mechanic until I had this car.

I use to own an old Camaro with over 200,000 miles, and never had a mechanical problem. When I bought my dream car (t-bird) I have been stranded on i10 in the middle of nowhere because of a fault in the transmission line, which spilled transmission fluid all over the highway. I then had it in the shop 6 months later because the rear brake system failed and had to be replaced. It is now again in the shop and I am unsure of the cause of this one.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
