Seriously that sucks to hear.
I try to avoid getting service done at a stealership.
I will ONLY take anything of mine to a certain dealership. That is because I personally know the mechanic, and I request his service every time.
Dude, I hear you! I would love a 5spd lol.
But yeah they didn't take any responsibility, and they didn't even tell me they were sorry! Well as costly as it was, I have definitely learned my lesson. I will from this day forward take it to my mechanic I usually use. He doesn't play any games and tells me how it is straight lol.

Don't take the law into your own hands, take them to court... the People's Court.
It was def their fault. The transmission guy I have used for a while said they had tightened the bands over 20 ft/lbs instead of like 10-12. Basically they tightened them and didn't back the adjustment bolt off 2 full turns it sounds like to me.
But yeah I tried to get them to wave the fee for what they had done on Tuesday instead of holding them accountable for f'ing my transmission. That didn't work lol.
I have thought about going down there and threatening them with the local paper or something. I really don't thing a lawsuit would help me, but ya never know. And I don't want to step on too many toes since I know the parts manager personally and I get Ford parts at dealer price or less (35-45%) which is pretty dang nice, haha!
