Ford Fiesta Transmission Problems Continue

May 07, 2015 By: LemonLaw Category: Ford, ford fiesta, Transmission

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.

        I have had my Fiesta repaired going on 4 times, the first problem started just after 5000 miles I have had the car for 2 years now with 22,707 miles going in for the 4th time for the same problem. I contacted Ford customer service and a Lemon Law attorney but I am not sure what to expect…we shall see I do not want this Fiesta the transmission is horrible

          we purchased our Ford Fiesta 2014 on 1/2015 and now 6 months later….it needed a new clutch and transmission module, I don’t like that the lemon law has to have 3 or 4 repairs on the same thing to do something!! and if they can help…..:(

            @L: I am hoping you opened a claim with the lemon law firm and submitted your documents so they can begin.

            • #6 LemonLaw says:

              @Lori: We also look at days out of service as well. How many days has it been and are they recorded properly on the invoices?

                Anyone know if Canada has a similar/equivalent lemon law by which one can pursue retribution from Ford for selling us these lemons/Fiestas?
