Ford fiesta 2011 review australia



"Huge problem that Ford knows about and continues to ignore. They replaced it with the same stock parts, meaning that this issue will come up again after the warranty. I've had problems with this car multiple times regarding the transmission and have visited the dealership over and over again due to this problem." - 2011 Ford Fiesta owner / Toronto, Canada

"First attempt of repair, shuddering in acceleration, delay in acceleration, grinding in shifting. Had 3 other attempts of the repair from continuous issues. Reported to Ford for lemon law." - 2011 Ford Fiesta owner / Lemon Grove, California

SIGN THIS PETITION TO TELL FORD THAT THEY NEED TO REPLACE THE FAULTY TRANSMISSIONS IN ALL 2011-2015 FORD FIESTA'S AND 2012-2015 FORD FOCUS' OR GIVE THEIR CUSTOMERS MONEY BACK

Ford is trying to rip off their customers by refusing to replace faulty 'automatic' clutches - I'm a victim of this, and there are many others. There has been lawsuits filed against the car manufacturing giant, endless complaints from customers, and if you have a look online there are infinite users experience problems, desperate for a solution and feeling like they've wasted their hard earned money.

Most cars have a 3 year manufacturer warranty on their transmission. Just to prove that Ford are well aware of the issue - they've extended the warranty not once, but twice on the car, from 3 to 7 to 10 years. AND THEIR IS STILL NO FIX.

From 2011 for the Ford Fiesta and 2012 for the Ford Focus, Ford have been releasing cars with what they call a 'PowerShift Dual Clutch' to replace a traditional automatic setup. It's a new type of transmission, which essentially has two clutches as opposed to the traditional one - one clutch drives the odd gears and the other drives the even. In theory, the clutch shifts faster and more effectively and the car is more fuel efficient. But this is theory and nothing more - as the way Ford have implemented this new transmission has very clearly failed.

Users experience many problems with the transmission, from excessive shuddering and jerkiness with acceleration, severe rattling and grinding noises, to complete loss of response with the accelerator. Not issues you expect, or want with cars under 5 years old.

Let's use my car as an example. I (regrettably) recently purchased a 2011 Ford Fiesta WT Zetec. I'm a full time uni student and work 30+ hours a week, and as you can imagine; I rely heavily on my car. Since 2011, Ford have released 17 Technical Service Bulletins (these are bulletins dealt to authorised mechanics describing how to fix a fault) purely dedicated to the transmission on the model of car I purchased. They've already released 5 for this year alone. Each and every one of these have been a poor attempt to cover up the fact that these cars and many other models are fitted with faulty transmissions.

3 months ago I began to experience problems with the transmission. There was a loud clunk and rattle when I brought the car to a stop, or accelerated with a relatively slow momentum. There was an occasional jerk, but naturally, as a 2011 model with under 60,000 kilometres, this seemed odd and I was concerned. I took my car into the dealer, and of course they knew instantly what the issue was. They ordered me a new clutch and claimed this was the solution to the problem.

It took a whole 9 weeks for my new clutch to arrive. That's how widely affected customers are by the issue, and how heavily on backorder the part is. I took my car in just last week and had the new clutch fitted; and yet I'm still experiencing the exact same problems. I was given a loan car for the day. A brand new Ford Focus with under 1500 kilometres on it, which sadly, had the very same issue.

Ford are still manufacturing cars with these problems, they have no fix to their faulty clutches, and they're trying to sweep the problem under the rug by releasing temporary fixes to keep customers quiet.

Here is a video showing the awful noise Fiesta drivers are hearing - https://www.youtubewatch?v=ZvVNxVl7bqc .

Feel free to Google "Ford transmission problems" and see the long list of people ripped off by Ford, desperate to get their hard earned dollars back.

It's sad. I feel like I've wasted my money, and I feel sorry for everyone else that feels the same way. I have no faith in Ford.
