Re: Chip Upgrade

I'm sure someone will come out with a chip or tuner for this. But I'm sure companies will also need some time to get that tune all figured out. The big thing lately is tuners such as Superchips MicroTuners. You just plug it into the OBD diagnostics port and tune it from there. You don't need tools a...

Hmmm... I was under that impression too. Check out this quote from a Ford press release . Looks like you only get fuel savings over a traditional 4 speed automatic transmission, and not necessarily a 6 speed one. The obvious benefit is smoothness because there's no shifting. But CVTs are more effici...

You know, there's probably quite a few people that would appreciate that. I drive both an F-150 and a Taurus and I have to stop for a second to remember which side the fuel door is on when I'm in the Taurus. The truck is on the left and the car is on the right.... I'm getting used to it now :) :lol:...

Hmmm, that is kind of weird. I would have thought the CVT would be standard on the SEL or Limited.... maybe it's because the CVT is new and they don't want too many of them out in case they break :D

Yup, it's the Aisin AW six-speed automatic. Well I got the info direct from Ford media, so it must be correct 8)

I haven't seen any reviews. They should be coming within the next month or so. I haven't heard about the mileage yet either. That usually doesn't come until very close to the date that the vehicle hits the showroom floor.

The Freestar is a van.... do you mean Montego (the Mercury twin to the Five Hundred)? If that's the case, then yes, I'll add info relevant to that car too.

Yes, the lower models won't have woodgrain, they'll have carbon-fiber. If that's my choice, I'd take the wood over the tacky carbon-fiber any day. :) Quote from the specifications overview page: The interior styling builds on the same theme, with inviting materials and surface treatments – from smoo...
