Default Update on the Mercury....

i took the car in to atomic transmissions today to have them diagnose the shifting problem and they said the torque converter is toast and they think the valve body is toast too, so it needs to be rebuilt basically, grrrrr, ah well the powertrain warranty im gettin for it is gonna cover it so im not too concerned, it was behaving very well today too, barely felt it jerking at all. overall tho im lovin the little thing trans problem or not, fully loaded and everything AND im getting 34mpg on it which is BEAUTIFUL imo

ill have pics of it later when i borrow my cousins camera, cuz mine sucks the big one
