Ford Australia has extended the warranties of almost 50,000 Fiesta, Focus and EcoSport vehicles equipped with the brand's six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
Dubbed a customer satisfaction program rather than a product recall, the action addresses a defect that may cause the ‘Powershift' auto gearbox to exhibit “excessive transmission clutch shudder during light acceleration”.
Ford says the condition may be caused by a fluid contamination of the clutch due to leaking transmission seals.
In a letter to owners, Ford Australia said it had extended the new vehicle warranty to cover “repairs on the clutch and input shaft seals on the transmission, as well as the transmission software calibration, to a total of five years or 160,000km from the vehicle's warranty start date, whichever occurs first”.
No word on if this affects our cars. Anyone heard anything?

My understanding is that the petrol cars has had powershift issues. However the Diesel ones use a different transmission and has had next to no issues reported?
Can anyone confirm this?
