    Angry 2012 ford fiesta transmission shudder in first

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    my partners 2012 ford fiesta is continually going back to the dealer to attend to a VERY noticeable shudder when accelerating from start..dealer keeps tweeking the computer but can only get the transmission to comply within Ford's spec for the operation of the transmission and therefore cannot replace the transmission at Ford's cost...

    We are both seriosly getting pi...ed about the driveavility of the car...IS THIS A COMMON PROBLEM WITH THIS MODEL FIESTA OR DO WE HAVE A LEMON...would dearly like some advice

    Yes this is a very common with the DCT transmission. Sadly there's not much you can do other than rely on the dealer to reprogram the transmission.
