2013 Ford Fiesta Owner Comments

problem #3

  • 23,743 miles


The contact owns a 2013 Ford Fiesta. While driving approximately 60 mph, the vehicle jerked every time the accelerator pedal was depressed. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was diagnosed that the inner input seal and clutch needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired; however, the failure recurred three months later. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer where the technician noticed that the clutch fractured and needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired, but the failure recurred. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 23,743.

I purchased my 2013 Fiesta new off the car lot. It was the biggest mistake ever. It has been in the repair shop twice for clutch replacements. I was in an accident the last time because it hesitated and then took off and ran in to the car in front of me. Ford didn't care about the accident. I had to argue with them to get a car to drive while they fixed my car yet again. It has again started hesitating and then excelling quickly and I don't know what to do anymore. I bought a new car for reliability and this is far from reliable. It is very very loud also.
