2018 Fiesta St-line X 2nd gear problem


Recommended Posts

I’ve had our 2018 Fiesta St-line X for a couple of months, bought it with 13k on the clock and it drove like a dream.

Recently there’s been an issue where on occasion when selecting 2nd gear it engages then jumps out again. It may do it 2 or. 3 times on a journey or not at all. I thought it may have been me so I ensured the clutch was fully engaged and the gear positively selected but still the same crunching and slipping out of gear. It’s also happened when my wife has driven it.

I’m going to contact Ford as there’s still 6 months of warranty remaining but in the meantime has anybody else experienced the same issue?

Thanks in advance.

No, not on mine.

Edit: just to add to that. It's not the slickest gearchange I've ever had on a Ford. Some members on here have reported the same, while others say their changes are good, so individual cars seem to vary. Not seen any mention of the sort of issues described on the Mk 8, though.

Thanks. It’s booked in with Ford in a weeks time so we’ll see. 
It’s not a case of just being a clunky gear change, it physically engages gear then instantly half drops out causing a gear grinding noise. I then have to take it out of gear and try again.
