hi we have a 2014 xsport awd powershift on hearing all these stories about dodgy powershift has anyone got one that has done over 70000 miles with no gearbox problems
Is this the first time you have seen keithmacs' post on this. Looks like someone has not done their R&D properly on the gearbox or someone has decided to save a penny or two by ordering the the spring retainers in the wrong material. That could be down to the company who supplied the parts. After all plastic is plastic isn't it......not. Irrespective of the right material or not the whole design is just a recipe for disaster with costly consequences and if ford knew the design was ok, they wouldn't have changed it.Whoah!! That is indeed some very disturbing news (as is the photo of the internal bits).....
Hello Pete, they have removed the Major failure point (the clutch damper assy) with the 2017 on Powershift design.For Keithmac.....
With your experience of the Powershift transmission, do you feel the changes Ford have made post 2017 (and other changes since) have made this transmission set up more durable? Have they finally ironed out the major faults?
We have a late 2019 Vignale Powershift and I plan to change the transmission oil at 25,000 miles and there after. The car doesn't tow or spend time crawling in long traffic queues and I was hoping the car will give us long service.

Can you see the white sticker on top of the gearbox (under the air filter)?, if you can post the number I could give you an answer.I have a 2017 Kuga 180 powershift it was built on 20th December 2016 is this likely to have problems? What is my powershift likely to be spec wise?
