2013 Ford Fiesta SE 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


I've had a 2013 Fiesta SE sedan with the PowerShift automatic transmission for a little over a year.
At 6,500 miles it needed substantial transmission repairs.
It's still noisy like a coffee grinder, very poor acceleration, with a long - and dangerous - hesitation when needing to accelerate quickly.
A few times it has shifted into the wrong gear which is pretty jolting.
At first the dealer agreed there was something wrong and did the repairs.
Now that it's doing the same thing, suddenly everything is operating 'normally.'
Yeah, right.
Maybe it's what I get for buying a Mexican car.
Ford has lost this customer.

Best Features

The gas mileage is very good - especially while it is in the shop.

Worst Features

Recall all the Fiestas and Focuses with the PowerShift automatic and replace the transmissions with something that works. Admit it, Ford, this is a failed design!
