A number of factors.
If it ain't broke don't fix it (cab drivers especially)
Service costs
The initial rumour of the box being programmed to self destruct at 300,000kms thus requiring a total rebuild (this scared a f**k of fleet operators away from the ZF).

At the end of the day the 4 speed box is a bucket of s**t compared to what else is on offer today. They tried to address the s**t with the 5 speed but it was a failure because it had the same sloppy shift quality as the agricultural 4 speed. Still better than the commodore but still a bucket of s**t. Ford have finally achieved the goal of having world class engines in their cars and to fit them with anything less than world class transmissions is a travesty.

sure the zf 6 speed auto is better than 4 speed, but repair costs are much higher if needed to be replaced. i have heard that 6 k is what zf are worth. im much happier with my 4 speed that is much more common and cheaper to repair, or replace., in my bf 2 xr6.
