Yes you are correct as I have heard they are having problems with that 6 spd. manual trans that is made in China

After hearing all about these different problems makes me wonder if I should buy a new Mustang instead even though the Challenger is a much nicer riding comfortable car?
I've had no problems at all with mine! Come to think of it, I never had any problems with my Mustang, either!

I hope the OP gets his problems resolved.

I flirted with the idea of defecting to Ford after all the issues my Charger had, but then I found out that the grass ain't greener over there. Plus I couldn't bring myself to want that car (nothing wrong with it; it's just for different people).

Right it's a smaller car and doesn't ride as nice.

There's more to it, but since the thread is specifically about problems I just figured that reliability and quality might not be (that much) better.

I owned a 2007 Mousestang(V6). Wasnt a bad car, but they are like the Camaros and only seat 4. I can put 5 in the Challenger, now I look for them so they can see real muscle. BTW I've had the car back a week and it seems to be working fine, I can get in and out of traffic with no problem, and it accelerates like a BEAST!

The Fords are of better quality for American cars probably the best.
