Transmission Problems Plague Ford Fiesta & Ford Focus In San Diego

Ford Fiesta and Ford Focus have been plagued with transmission problems for years. This blog post will discuss the most common transmission issues that these cars have faced in recent history. We’ll also discuss what you can do to help prevent your car from having a transmission problem!

Ford Fiesta Transmission Problems

The Ford Fiesta has been in production for almost 40 years. It had a manual transmission for the first 25 or so of those years (a stick shift). The manual transmission was phased out around 2012 and replaced with an automatic version. However, like any other car on the market, problems can still arise even when your car is fully automated!

One major issue that has occurred with modern Fiestas is their transmissions slipping. A few owners have reported that they were able to get this problem fixed at no cost by taking advantage of the warranty program offered through Ford Motor Company. This type of repair should be relatively easy because there are few parts involved in shifting gears, meaning little to go wrong mechanically.

The Ford Focus has been in production for over 15 years. The first few models were equipped with manual transmissions, but the automatic version was phased around 2003 or 2004 (depending on what year your car was manufactured). Early problems included failing clutches and faulty solenoids, which are relatively common issues affecting any make/model of vehicle. However, like most other cars on the market today, these types of repairs should be covered under a warranty! These parts usually fail because they get used frequently while driving – especially if you drive your car often, live in a cold climate, or drive your car to work every day.
