Class action lawsuits rarely help the consumer. They just make the lawyers rich.
They did one for my former Xterra for a faulty radiator that allowed coolant into the transmission, thereby killing said transmission. All nissan ended up having to do was extend the warranty to a whopping 80000 miles, repaying people that paid out pocket before that prorated depending on miles when it failed. Problem was most of the vehicles that had the suspect radiator were well past 80000 miles when the settlement came out. It was a ticking time bomb unless you hacked your Xterra and bypassed the radiator in the chain. Didnt hurt anything to do it but it made it take a lot longer to warm up the transmission in cold weather and impacted gas mileage a bit in a negative way.
The transmission cost some upwards of $4000 to replace.

Has anyone been successful in getting a lemon law or buy back from Ford?
At 67,000 miles we are back in for our 3rd or 4th clutch assembly. Just curious to hear what others have experienced. Didn't read all 14 pages.

|FordFan1265||My 2012 was in the shop 4 times in the first 50k miles for transmission or transmission related issues. But only twice was the issues enough to require major repairs. The other two times merely requires a reflash. But I do agree there are many with major issues that need to be addressed. Don't see how Ford can ignore just about every car mag review, consumer report, etc. that points out the issue. I remember seeing a site at some point in the last couple of years that had statistics including the percentage of customer complaints per the number purchased... it was high enough of a percentage to prove there was a major issue (with the 2012's and 2013's at least). I bought a 2014 on January 2 and have put nearly 2000 miles on it in less than a month and have not experienced a single transmission glitch... By the 2000 mile mark in my 2012 I had already returned to the dealer for a reflash of the TCM due to shifting issues. So I am hoping this transmission is all good.|

|danbfree||Good input from everyone, guys, some good insight. I know I'm definitely happy with my DCT. I let the girlfriend drive it 3 hours away and back, a lot in traffic and she said it behaved pretty good in traffic, which I've experienced as well. You just have to pay a little more attention to not let it creep much and make your on/off throttle inputs a little more deliberate while in traffic and it will perform nicely. As far as having the latest seals, it would be nice to know for those considering 2014 models which build dates to look for. As far the original topic here, and those WITH problems still, we've seen Ford begin to acknowledge issues with more detailed TSB's. It seems like you have to find the right dealer or at least get your issue escalated and you will be taken care of. There is where Ford could avoid further talk of legal issues, simply get dealers to consistently take care of the customers with problems instead of letting dealers try to brush off those with complaints.|
