This transmission had a lot of problems early on in the V8 cars. Haven't heard much about the Boss. The GT500 also uses a 6 speed manual. Could it be the same one as the V6? Hopefully Ford, at least swapped out some internal components. BMW always uses different transmissions for each car, depending on the transmissions OEM torque rating.'
Wow, you are so ill informed..when you are in a hole quit digging...

Ford rust warranty is 5 yrs. and unlimited mileage...

So many fanbois on this site.....a fully loaded GT500 coupe with the glass roof is $67k, without it just over $65k..if the car was available for MSRP great deal, with the ADMs its not. Still what can touch this car for $80k?

Also the issues with the MT82 have all been rectified and uses a Getrag tranny just like our BMWs. Even the DCT is built by Getrag.
