I have taken to Ford many times over the past year. I had the vehicle at a Ford dealership for a month. Re-i nstall the fill plug. As he was coming out though, the car restarted. Was told that this was a common problem with the Fiesta.
If you believe this information does not accurately characterize your car, please. The fun part requires a little planning because there's not a lot of juice available at the bottom of the rev range, we think the dual-clutch auto deserves a manual control option, and some of us have reservations about long-haul seat comfort. Who can I contact, where do I turn? Ford says it is flat 4 wheels on the ground towable. It is now September 28 and there's still no check engine light that has turned on. Dealer said all of the Fiesta's do that. But this was the first time it had not restarted after multiple attempts. After this was completed the vehicle still doesn't go into gear and I'm now in need of a rebuild because the synchronizers are needing replacement.
I can't empathize enough if you want a reliable car do not purchase a Ford or you as a consumer will be bleed financially for a product that they are not pulling or recalling until someone dies because of their mistake. I just checked and Ford is still not selling the parts, so I guess I'll have to sell it for what I can get out of it. I complained to Ford customer care and they originally told me it was covered under my powertrain warranty. We have been told by both the dealer and Ford corporate that we are 1,400 miles over warranty at 61,400 miles, so there is no financial assistance with the repair. It was happening basically the entire 3 years I owned the car, but got steadily worse over time. Ford gave me a loaner because it was under warranty every they needed to repair it. Car then will move forward when put in Drive.
No Repair authorized - transmission still noisy 15000 km still having an issue with a hesitant first gear 16000 km the work order was left open waiting for an expected transmission recall 29332 km Loud grinding from axle. After the flywheel repair, the car made grinding noises in reverse. Put car in reverse, nothing happens. Remove the fill plug using the correct sized Allen wrench. I have always had a quality vehicle Navigator, Mustang, F150, and an old f100 but this vehicle has killed all fords for me. Many call it an automated manual when I researched this issue.
I press on the gas and the car doesn't move 64516 km Car still not accelerating and stopping properly. It just uses a computer and electric motors to engage and disengage the clutches. Had to replace but Ford has no replacements -- took weeks to get new transmission. Step back five or 10 years, read that list again, and try to imagine the price -- and badge -- on such a car. Upper window on both front doors don't seal properly creating irritating wind noise at highway speed right next to the driver's and front passenger's ears. They had my car for another 3 months then finally call and tell me, oh your car needs a whole new transmission.
Since 2011, there have been numerous issues. The communication initiation had been on our part since drop-off. Software was reprogrammed to see if that resolved the problem. It just uses a computer and electric motors to engage and disengage the clutches. Cars behind me blowing their horns, drivers pretty angry. The advisor never spoke to me about a transmission leak, never, but that isn't about the car so I'll spare the details, and just add this, stay away from Ford of Orange's service department, they lie.
New seals along with new clutches were ordered from Ford. . Consumers of Ford produces are bleed dry when Ford is fully aware that they are offering the public a faulty product. Ford wants a ridiculous amount of money to fix it. We have talked to a Ford regional service manager in Florida who repeats the same denial of assistance. Should be good for another 6 months. Had to be towed to dealership.
The next appointment I will insist a new transmission. Clutches had to be replaced but there were no parts available. This was my 8th Ford vehicle out of 13 vehicles i have owned in my lifetime and it will be my last. We had the car immediately towed to the local dealer. Dealer attempted reprogram of transmission control module. They notified us that our vehicle would not be ready for another 2 to 3 weeks because they were still waiting for a manual transmission availability.
Under the hood The 2011 Ford Fiesta's four-cylinder engine is relatively smooth and strong, but it's more notable for its fuel efficiency than its power. I paid for the extended warranty. New car was pulled off lot to compare. I never expected to be treated so shoddily by Ford. The ford dealership came and got it the next day. The dealer replaced the Transmission Control Module, but that did not fix the problem.
