Oh, of course. Thanks, but see below and you decide.

I have had 1976 F150 manual ran the wheels off it
1982 Ford F150 auto OK - had 2 years and sold when I moved to FL
1999 Ford Escort manual New- 2 kids thru college, ran the wheels off it
1999 Ford Escort Auto - Tranny failed towed away $400
2006 Ford Escape XLT - 2 auto Trannys failed. For sale now
Daughter 2000 something Ford Explorer 5 auto trannys in and out- sold was very painful to watch that happen.
Daughter - Late 1990's Ford F150 - 1 auto tranny failed - sold ..they drive all chevy now.

So I have had my share of Fords. IMO...Fords auto trannys are junk.
