Id give it a swing before you go throwing the wallet around.

Also step 1. Check the trans fluid. There is no dip stick and multiple people have reported A10s shifting like shit when low on fluid.

So when I let it sit a while, like overnight, it'll allow me to shift into 3rd on the first go. And when it's in there is sounds pretty bad. Definitely something broken.

Instead of purchasing that Mustang, imagine how many reliable DSM's you could have gotten?

Ohh yeah? Ask any DSM owner if they had problems shifting into 6th-10th gear.

I have no issues shifting into any of those gears. It's 3rd. And I'd argue the % of DSMers that have trouble shifting into 3rd at some point is probably near 90%+

Do dealers cover the cars that have dealer installed blowers? If they do, they should fix your trans.

If you buy the warranty when they install the blower and donít change the tune, he installed his own blower

It is not uncommon for a dealer to fix suspensions, rear ends, and transmissions on cars that have customer installed superchargers. But it is a crap-shoot as to which dealers are helpful with aftermarket parts.

Best of luck with this. Hopefully it isn't a major issue or one due to power failure.

I think Rod Baker Ford and Anderson Ford might be the best options since they both install aftermarket parts.

I would go back where you bought it and hopefully the salesman or sales mgr have a good relationship with the service writer or service mgr maybe they can help you. I would take the car on street tires and hopefully those are mint cond and pressure wash any rubber in the wheel wells and bring the car in spotless. U have a great shot if all the stars align for you
