Shuddering in 2018 ecosport

Hello! Does anyone of you experienced slight shuddering in A/T 2018 ecosport? I've read something about it in https://www.caradvice.com.au/546286/...ould-you-take/. I am yet scheduled for check up and i am a little bit bothered by it. Thanks.

There was a huge class action lawsuit around this issue a few years back against Ford Australia. I believe one of the fixes for it was a DCT clutch replacement. Please let us know what your dealer reports.

I imagine by now you got your EcoSport back and the issue resolved... there's just no way Ford would let it go on for this long.

Keep us posted on the status of your issue. Thanks!

Hi! Ford performed a shuddering test last Nov 16 and said they re-programmed my transmission. Problem is still apparent until now. Worse, my back-up sensor malfunctioned after that. I am scheduling another appointment through text and I haven't got a reply yet.

Sorry to hear about your ongoing issues with your new vehicle Maria. Since this issue has already been a been problem for Ford, you'd think they would have done their due diligence to ensure it wasn't still a problem on new models. Is you car shuddering at all times or only under acceleration?

Sadly i'm not surprised, meanwhile some people wonder why Ford plants are shifting meanwhile the segments Ford deems not profitable, is profitable for Japanese brands.
