    Default Any info about the 15-17 6SAO trans?

    My new 2017 GT 6 speed automatic just blew out after 7000 or so miles. I'm not hard on this car, and I have no idea what's wrong yet. At first they thought it would be a sensor or something but as it turns out they are going to take it out this Thursday. I wonder if I'll get a new one or will they rebuild what I have?

    Is there a history of trouble out there? Just wondering is anyone knows anything.

    6r80 is a solid trans, capable of withholding 900-1000 with no mods. I doubt they will rebuild, probably just replace with new

    That's what I thought. I'll post just what it was when I see. I was also wondering if the Whipple and Twin Turbo cars changed the converter?

    It depends on what Ford's warranty and quality departments will want to do. Since it is a '17, Ford may want the complete trans back for failure analysis. Otherwise for big ticket items like engines or transmissions, they usually have a cost rule in place. If cost to repair is below x% of a new transmission, they will repair it. The 6R80 is a stout trans. Unfortunately with mass production, a bad part slips through every now and then.
