San Diego Lemon Law
Ford Fiesta and Focus


I'm writing again about the transmission issues in Ford Fiesta and Focus cars from 2011 through at least 2016.  The symptoms are typically slipping, shaking and vibrating and referred to as a “clutch shudder”, as well as, rollback and lack of power.  Sometimes there is a warning message of "Transmission Overheating" as well.

If you have one of these cars, and it is suffering from any of these symptoms, I urge you to contact an experienced Lemon Law attorney in your area immediately.  Ford is buying these cars back, but only when pressured by an attorney.  

I've discovered what Ford is looking for: the car has been to the dealer at least three times for transmission complaints, the clutch assembly has been replaced at least one time, and the transmission is still malfunctioning after replacement of the clutch assembly. 

If your car has a repair history like that, call an experienced Lemon Law attorney now.  Most Lemon Law attorneys will not charge you any fees; we collect the fees from Ford when we get your car bought back.

Best of luck!
