Hello,
after close to my 4th year of ownership of a 2013 ford focus titanium trim with the dual clutch 6speed, I recently lost reverse, 2nd, 4th and 6th gear, this happened after two trips to the dealer and getting "could not replicate problem" as a diagnostic from my experience with the car the transmission was not ready and you will be told "the car drives differently with each driver" well on this most recent trip where the transmission I'm assuming (if it isn't the clutch had died) my whole transmission had died ford will recall it if its under the mileage warranty of my car on the other hand has over 166,000 miles is dead in the water as it sits and have been quoted up to 4,000 for a whole transmission replacement including labor, if anyone has had the same issue please tell me how much you were quoted or what you did to regain gears, and get the car driving again.
Thanks a bunch William

Well i can tell you this much. If the trans is broken/worn out, it would be way cheaper to buy a good low mileage used one on eBay or from a junk yard and have a shop swap it out for you. I just bought a spare transmission from Pick Your Part out of a 2016 Focus for $180.00 with a brand new clutch assembly in it. The trans only has 42,000 miles on it. Ford just installed the new clutch kit and seal 7,000 miles ago. I do not need a new trans in my 2016 Titanium yet, but the car this other trans was in had such low miles on it and I looked up when the clutches were replaced that I couldn't pass up the deal for a spare tranny once mine ever goes out. So you can find used ones on eBay as well for an average around 450.00 to 600.00. You just have to look around. I would never pay Ford to put a new on in my car. That is for sure.

as far as picking a used one up would it also have to be programed in, or just bolt it up and go and if so would you buy the cable and software or have an independent shop program it? haven't looked into it much as this is the first car ive owned newer than 06 with a auto transmission. also thanks for the quick response!
