... It happened to me with a Toyota trans and with a friend of mine with a Saturn engine.
I may be in a similar position with my 2013 but because of warranty time rather than miles. I did get the extended warranty for the maximum time but it is not that long.
I thought of one other time it happened. My Father's 2000 Honda Accord. That model had known transmission problems. His car was out of warranty, I called Honda for him and told them he was old and 3000-3400 was too much money. After as I recall was more than one call, they offered to pay about half with him paying the labor and I accepted immediately. It might be worth a call to Ford though don't get your hopes up.
I called Toyota to try to do the same thing on my 1999 Sienna but they would not talk to me saying take it to the dealer and the dealer was not helpful though took my money to look at it. Though a rebuilt trans was only going to cost me like 3200 as I recall.
It might also be worth calling Ford to see if they have any rebuilt transmissions or use that they do not have rebuilt transmission as leverage to get Ford to pay some of it. And as other have mentioned, ebay sells used transmissions but getting installation may be challenging. Installing a C-Max trans is a big deal and I would not want someone to do it that hasn't done it before.
