Is it safe to buy a Ford Focus 1.6 powershift 2015 (65 reg)?

Recommended Posts

I just put down a deposit for 2015 / 65reg Ford Focus 1.6 petrol powershift. 

I’ve now been reading lots of reports about faulty transmissions and Ford even been sued over them. I can mainly only find reports from America and Australia though and I’m in the UK.

I’ve now read somewhere that some of the 2015 transmissions have been upgraded and somewhere else it says in 2016 a new one got introduced.

Is it safe to buy the 2015 petrol 1.6 powershift or am I at high risk of running into trouble? 

Thanks!

Two clutches to pay for when they wear out.  Not for me.

I’ve actually called the dealer before and asked for my deposit back. Reading all the bad reports got me a bit too worried. 

I’m gonna go for a Manual 1.5 petrol eco boost now.

Liking the new profile pic @iantt 😎.

The 1.5 ecoboost must be faster plus as its manual you'll hopefully get more mpg.

My reasoning also, though the face I have used is not so well known in the UK.

I chose him for his punch line. Anyone know it?
