Went to Autobacs Tebrau Metropolis on 11/four/2014 for regular sevice and ATF change. Do not beleive all the sales hype, these are nothing more than a electronic designed snowmobile transmission. It’s nowhere close to as fun or participating as a twin clutch automatic or handbook transmission. Tow truck driver stated he’s already towed 5 broke down Fords up to now 6 hours alone. And if Ford tells a vendor not to repair a defect you possibly can bet the seller won’t attempt.
I emphatically instructed the salesman at the time of purchase that despite my financial scenario from being a single mom for many years, my family needed dependable transportation, and at 271,000 miles, I didn’t know how lengthy my Focus wagon might provide that and so I felt I needed to purchase a new automotive. Ford stopped fitting the sort of gearbox shortly after I purchased my automotive apparently as they realised it was not working.
Have everybody beat… I purchased my 2013 Focus se licensed used from Ford dealership November 2015 with roughly 44000 miles. My Dad drives a F350 Dual wheel Diesel Truck, I drive a Ford Taurus, my brother drives a Ford Explorer, my sister drove a Ford Explorer, and now my daughter drives a Ford Focus. In the meantime, Ford has been busy sending out restore bulletins to its dealers on the conventional” noise and the transmission and different Escape troubles.
The first automotive I’m aware of that had a break up cone transmission was a small Citroen with a sliding gear lever the motive force adjusted to swimsuit pace, engine revs and many others. Experiences are that half will cause or contribute to a premature wear of the strain clutch plates after which lead to total transmission failure. Last week the transmission mild came on and she immediately referred to as to schedule an appointment at the native Ford dealership.
When you take pleasure in revving your car to its redline, and feeling the thrust as your automotive shifts, then perhaps a CVT isn’t for you in any respect. I have a 2004 Murano high of the road, 70K miles, no issues with CVT transmission. One dealer advisor blames it on the poorly constructed and engineered” 2.5L I-four engine in the Escape, which he says fails to properly distribute its vibrations, resonances and sound harmonics successfully, so it all runs to the transmission and the rest of the car.
