First Time It Almost Completely Died On Me Getting On The Highway, Then All Of The Sudden It Gunned It And Took Off. About 3 Miles Down The High Way Engine Lights And Service Lights Came On. I Got To Work And They Towed It. They Said They Changed Some Kind Of Wiring Under The Front Window And Dash. That Didn’t Fix It. The Next Day I Was Pulling Out Of Wendy’s And Give It Some Gas And Nothing Happened. I Rolled Then All Of The Sudden It Gunned It Again. I Almost Got Hit. Got It Home And Parted It. Took It In The Next Day And They Changed The Throttle Body On It. It Still Hesitates As You Go Down The Highway. Has Very Little Take Off And Merging Power. The Only Thing I Am Glad I Did When I Bought This Car Was I Got A Straight Drive. It Would Have No Power If It Was An Automatic. *tr

I Picked Up This Vehicle Brand- New From The Dealership On 8/2/13. By 8/5, Three Days After I Got The Car, The Entire Front End Had Started To Shudder And Chug, And The “check Engine” Light Came On. It Felt Like A Deep-seated Timing Issue (the Engine Rpms Had Been A Bit Off Since I Picked Up The Car On 8/2, And It Appeared To Be Shifting Oddly, Even Before The Check Engine Light Came On). The Clutch Also Engaged At Odd Times (i Bought An Automatic), And It Didn’t Appear That The Engine Rpms And Transmission Shifting Were Synching Up Correctly At All. My Diagnosis Was Confirmed When I Took The Vehicle To Romano ford In Syracuse, Ny, Where I Purchased The Vehicle. The Next Day (8/6), I Was Told That A “cam Phaser” Had Failed On The Engine Due To A Manufacturing Defect, And That The Engine Oil Would Need To Be Completely Flushed And Changed. After A Bit Of Research, I Found Out That The Phaser Is A Small Gear That Regulates Engine Timing….by Being Cut Incorrectly, Metal Shavings From The Gear Had Contaminated My Engine Oil. This, Obviously, Is Not An Easy Fix. By Screwing Up My Engine Timing, The Regulation Of My Entire Vehicle Is Screwed Up. The Car Has Been Sitting In The Shop Since 8/6 (it Is Now 8/22), With No Resolution In Sight. They Brought In A ford Technician From God-knows-where That Is Supposed To Fix It; It Was Supposed To Be Fixed 2 Days Ago To No Avail. I Am Now Closing In On The Time Period For Invoking The Ny State Lemon Law; I Hope I Can Get My $ Back And Send This Thing To The Dump! ford Needs To Recall These Crappy Things Asap! *tr

My fordfiesta2013 Has Been Having Issues With Shuddering, Lunging, Jerking, And Failing To Engage Gear Shifts. I Have Been Told By Several ford Dealers And Servicemen That I Need To Drive The Vehicle As If It Were A Stickshift And Hesitation Between Gear Shifts Is Normal For This Car. A ford Dealer Hooked Up A Laptop And Reset The Vehicle To Tsb 13-4-5 “intermittent Transmission Clutch Shudder Dps6 Automatic Transmission”. The Problem Was Not Resolved, So I Filed A Complaint With ford Motor Company; Complaint #2989023. I Was Told That I Need To Bring The Car To A Dealer And They Need Proof That There Is Something Wrong With The Car. The Service Person Said I Need To Be Driving The Car While Faults Are Documented Because The Car Has An Adaptive Learning Program That Responds To The Driver’s Actions. I Brough The Car To Schaumburgh ford In Illinois. The Service Director Test Drove The Car While I Was In The Passenger’s Seat. He Said He Did Not Experience Any Faults With The Vehicle. However, There Was One Instance As We Were Returning Back To The Dealership, That The Car Shuddered. The Dealer Took The Car For The Afternoon 8/29/2013 And Said He Reset The Car Again For Tsb 13-4-5 Update Although They Were Unable To Provide Me With A Receipt Of Work That Was Done. On The Morning Of 8/30/2013 The Car Experienced Overheating And Burning Under The Hood. A Service Person From The Schaumber ford Dealership In Illinois Met To Pick Up The Vehicle. The Service Person Told Me They Would Not Be Able To Provide A Rental Car Due To The Weekend Schedule. The Issue Is Still Being Addressed By The Dealer At This Time.

Took Car To Get Accelerator Sticking, Chugging Down, Loosing Power For The 5th Time. When They Put It On The Computer To See What Was Wrong They Found Out That The Last Dealer That Did The Airbag Recall Left The Thing Unplugged. What? Really? If We Would Have Got The Accelerator To Stick Or Car Die When I Was Pulling Out And Got Hit And My Husband Would Have Gotten Hurt Because The Airbag Didn’t Deploy, What Would Their Excuse Be This Time. *tr

Transmission Jerks Aggressively From 1-3 Gear. Sometimes Acceleration Is Delayed And Sluggish. Has Almost Caused A Wreck On Several Occasions. Also, The Delayed Reaction Causes The Car To Lerch Forward And The Engine Revs Up High Causing The Breaks To Fail. So You Must Drive With More Distance Than Normal To Avoid Collision. I Had One Car Completely Replaced. Transmission Was Completely Shot After 400 Miles. Grinding, Slipping, Jerking, Clunking, Hesitation, Etc. This Transmission Is A Piece Of Junk. Both Cars Had The Same Problems.
