In 1996 I bought a 1988 Ford Escort($1300) with a rebuilt engine that had 15,000 miles on it, the tranny had only another 40k on top of that. Once the tranny hit 58,000 it was toast. Rebuilt ($1900) it and 4 months(3600miles) later the tranny bit the bullet again. My mechanic at that point called me about 10 minutes after I dropped the car off and asked if I had gotten the transmission rebuilt because some of the parts were still shiny. He the congradulated me on owning one of the shittiest trnasmissions hes ever seen. -ken p.s. I pulled the engine and sold it, the new owner said that it had died as well about 6 months after he had it installed in his daughter's car.
