Ford to repair problematic PowerShift transmissions for free

Ford has instructed its U.S. dealers to repair troublesome Fiesta and Focus PowerShift dual-clutch transmissions for free, if any owners notify them of problems. The news was reported today by Automotive News, and it comes after The Detroit Free Press published a story about how Ford was reportedly aware of the transmission problems even at the vehicles’ original launch. On July 17, Ford publicly challenged the conclusions made in the Freep article.
