Hi Mike Bartlett,

I recommend making an appointment at your dealership so they can address your concerns. Additionally, I can get your case escalated to your region's customer service manager; just send me a PM with your VIN, dealer, mileage, daytime phone number, and full name.

Regarding your question about the AUX port and in-vehicle technology, I encourage you to reach out to my colleague, Jaclyn, who helps folks out under the name FordIVTteam.

Crystal

This is from today, on my way back home from the dealership, where the car was for "transmission issues."

Unbelievable... I don't know what to do anymore... I'm tired of going back to the dealer......

Hi cappa,

I looked at your case notes and see that your CSM and dealership are aware of this and are working hard on a resolution. Please feel free to reach out to your CSM directly if you need additional assistance.

Hey Crystal, I called my technician at the Ford dealership and explained the issue. He said they will need to take a look at it, and said "there have been issues with the new transmission". I'm taking it in on Monday. I came in the dealership few weeks ago and got a computer update when the tech had originally said I needed a new clutch system. After the update it was running much better then slowly some symptoms started to come back. Also, even though my car is under warranty they want $15 a day for a loaner car... is this fair even though I feel I'm experiencing mechanical problems? thx

Hey mishka,

Send me your info (VIN, dealer, mileage, daytime phone number, full name) so I can look into this for you.

Thanks!

Crystal

Haven't come back for a while since my auto transmission replacement a couple of months ago.
Really hope all the owners find a nice dealer as I did. I simply took my car in and describe the problem, which was merely vibrating upshifting 1-2. The dealer replaced the whole transmission for me, which took over a week due to back order parts.

Now, after >1000 miles, it's time to report back.
Overall, it has become a smooth drive, with a tiny little shaking taking a fast go steep uphill from stop, not bad at all. I consider it normal for a DCT, given previous experience form driving a manual. Occasionally very slight grinding noise, barely audible with windows rolled down.
No change in MPG, around 26/38.

Good luck to you all! And hope this transmission lasts.

wow... they replaced the whole trans? how many miles did you put on it before it had to be replaced and what was the problem with it? I have a 13' DCT and have had some issues. I'm taking it to the dealer because of grinding noises and the ride/drive has gotten continually less smooth at low speeds. it was smoothest when brand new and just after computer update.
