Ford has tried, repeatedly, to repair the vehicles. In 2014, it extended the warranties on transmission-related parts to seven years and 100,000 miles on Focuses and Fiestas built before mid-2013. There are few vehicle repairs that are as expensive as rebuilding the transmission. A transmission rebuild costs anywhere from $1,428 to $3,015, depending on your model of car and where you get it fixed.That vast range comes from the fact that your transmission may contain parts that are hard to replace.

18242 kmThe automatic trans. had new grinding and clattering noises. Dealer thought needed repair, but Ford central said (without hearing noises) that 'those noises are normal.'Weren't there first 10,000, so at my insistence, they authorized repair.
24194 kmFinally, after much insistence on my part to Ford-- with backup from the dealer that abnormal noises could be heard, the automatic clutch module (of the auto transmission) was replaced and the transmission functioned well without noise.
20968 kmFlywheel failed. I was sitting in bumper-to-bumper traffic when the engine light and the 'limp home' light came on. The Fiesta did make it the additional 50 miles to the dealer. Still hesitates, bursts, tach jumps around, stutters, etc. After the flywheel repair, the car made grinding noises in reverse. It also would shift through all four gears before I got to 30 mph. Returned to the dealer and left the vehicle for several additional days. They said it was a computer prob.

Loud grinding noise from transmission. Dealer state broken washer allowing gears to rub together, replaced output shaft assembly. An accident might have caused this, as car was hit at rf wheel nine months earlier.

Replaced clutch pack. Replaced under warranty in May 2016, but started exhibiting shuddering and slipping within a year. Unfortunately, Ford extended warranty would not pay for a second time since car passed 100,000 miles. We will see if this repair holds up throughout the year. $2000. Edit: Noticed car had vibration, dealer said it may need to break in. I waited a few months and problem seemed to get worse (or I became more sensitive and annoyed). Took back to dealer to fix. Info in April trip record.

11077 kmI noticed an oil leak on my garage floor and took it in, apparently, there was a torn CV joint boot.

Ford’s PowerShift dual clutch transmission was used in 2010. Vehicles impacted are the Ford Fiesta (model years 2011-2016) and the Ford Focus (model years 2012-2016) equipped with a PowerShift transmission.

The PowerShift transmission is basically a manual transmission controlled electronically by a computer while using a 'dry clutch' rather than a 'wet clutch,' meaning oil is not supplied to the shifting mechanism and can result in increased wear and tear as problems persist. When the computer module used to operate the transmission is unable to handle rapid acceleration or shifts in speed, the vehicle sputters and creates an audible noise. The vehicle can also experience problems with downshifting, meaning the vehicle will remain in a higher gear despite deceleration and result in a lurch.

This is not just an issue of convenience or comfort, though. When accelerating quickly into an intersection, the delay can be dangerous as it prevents the vehicle from reaching the same speed a vehicle would achieve with an automatic transmission. When it comes to deceleration, the car's inability to properly downshift can lead to the vehicle lunging forward, even when the brakes are applied, making for a safety hazard in many circumstances.

Despite consistent software updates expected to improve the computer's ability to shift gears on demand, dealerships and service centers nationwide have been overwhelmed by transmission replacement demands. Ford has also taken action in replacing the TCM (Transmission Control Module) of some vehicles in hopes of resolving the issue. Owners of these vehicles can often be on their second, third.. even fourth transmission after only 3-4 years of ownership.

Due to the problems that owners have faced, Ford has extended the warranty of many of these vehicles, some for up to 100,000 miles. This is a clear indication Ford is aware of an ongoing problem with the vehicles and has made concessions to accommodate owners. However, the constant need for repair and the time and expense imposed upon owners to allow such repairs, is not acceptable. What's more, an extend warranty with no assurances of functional parts simply delays an inevitable cost to owners of these vehicles.
