Calls continue to ring through to the 1-800-LEMON-LAW hotline regarding Ford Fiesta transmission problems. Similar to the issue with the Ford Focus, the Fiesta contains an ecoboost transmission which is designed to improve fuel economy. Sadly, the downside to these transmissions is jumping, lunging, and lurching.
Being that this is essentially a manual transmission with computer modifications, Ford has come up with several software upgrades and other solutions. But unfortunately this has not prevented Ford drivers from returning to the dealer time and time again for repairs. Ford has also extended warranties for many Fiesta drivers.
One of our Ford Fiesta clients was featured with 1-800-LEMON-LAW Founding Partner Bob Silverman in a recent Morning Call Watchdog column about the Ford Fiesta transmission problems. As you will read, this problem is a rampant one and even if the dealer says the vehicle is “operating to normal specifications,” that does not mean it is operating correctly.
If your Ford Fiesta transmission problems are causing you to return to a Ford-authorized dealer numerous times for unsuccessful repairs, it’s time to look into your rights under State Lemon Laws and Federal Warranty Statutes. Click here to find a firm in your state who may be able to help.
