(Oct. 2003)torque converter failed and had to be replaced around 21,850 mi. Under warranty and replaced by dealer. (Mar 2005) torque converter failed and had to be replaced again around 38,000 mi. Replaced by dealer at a discount to me. Ford only guarantees torque converter for 12 mo. Or 12,000 mi. Should it fail again, estimated cost of repair will be around $1,000.
