What Is Going On With Ford’s Transmissions?
When you buy or lease a new car, you expect to drive it for tens of thousands of miles before having any serious issues. Especially when you buy from a well-established dealer like Ford, you trust that you’re driving away with a safe, dependable vehicle. But Ford’s Fiesta, Focus, and Fusion lines have been plagued with problems, starting from shortly after owners buy or lease them, and sometimes resolving only when owners unload the cars and buy or lease something else.
With newly passed federal fuel emissions regulations and the price of gasoline around 2010, Ford found itself in a race with its competitors to create the most fuel-efficient vehicles possible. It wanted small, light, aerodynamic cars that could run forever on a single tank of gas. To accomplish this, Ford decided to redesign its transmissions.
For the Fiesta and Focus, Ford created the PowerShift transmission (a modified manual transmission). This new design turned into a disaster for car owners, and we began litigating cases against Ford on consumers’ behalves. During the process, however, we continually received calls from clients having transmission trouble with their Ford Fusions, as well.
Stern Law looking into the matter further, and we soon discovered Ford placed another faulty transmission inside 2010-2016 Fusions. Though not the PowerShift transmission, the Fusion has its own set of dangerous issues.
If you think something is wrong with your Ford Fusion, it’s not just you.
As it did with Fiesta and Focus, Ford has taken great lengths to minimize the Fusion’s transmission issues when dealing with vehicle owners and lessees. Our clients tell us they have made repeated trips to the dealership, only to be turned away or sent home with a bill for a “fix” on a persistently dangerous vehicle. If you have experienced difficulties with your Ford Fusion, you are not alone.
2010-2016 Ford Fusion Transmission Issues
In the time we have been taking Fusion cases, we have become aware of the following alarming issues with models in 2010 through 2016:
- Jerking, shuddering, or jolting when shifting gears
- RPM malfunctions
- Electrical malfunctions
- Shaking of the entire car, especially when shifting into first gear
- Transmission slipping upon heavy acceleration
- Transmission making whining noises
- Transmission failing to shift on the highway
- Slamming into next gear, especially coming out of lower gears
- Rough shifting, particularly on a cold start
- Transmission fluid leaks
- Faulty transmission lines
- Gear grinding when shifting from first to second gear
- Clunking noise when changing gears
- Shuddering while accelerating or decelerating

We knew when the calls didn’t stop that we had to help Fusion owners in addition to Fiesta and Focus owners.
