Ford Fiesta Powershift Transmission – Class Action Investigation

Ford Fiesta Powershift Transmission – Class Action Investigation

Chimicles & Tikellis is investigating a potential class action lawsuit on behalf of Ford owners and lessees with Fiesta vehicles containing the Powershift six-speed automatic transmission. The Powershift transmission is essentially two three-speed manual transmissions merged and shifted electrically with two clutches. Using electrical controls rather than traditional hydraulics is supposed to help the transmission boost the fuel economy of the Fiesta by 10%. Yet since its launch, a sizable number of consumers have reported problems with the Powershift, both online and to U.S. auto safety regulators, ranging from hard shifts at speed to not engaging any gear. Some owners have even reported the need for multiple transmission replacements.
