Very loud grinding noise at any speed above 30, typical of a failing wheel bearing. Replaced driver's-side wheel bearing... Noise still present. Replaced entire driver's side half-shaft, which fixed the problem
Manual stick shift. Pops out of gear in reverse and first gear. Popping noise in rear of car. Sounds like a spring stretching and going back.
Recall on transmission, rebuilt parts of transmission.
A seal had broken in the transmission causing fluids to mix. This was causing shuddering when starting off from a light and jolting acceleration.
The 2013 Fiesta is prone to a shuddering and power loss problem that Ford has yet to recall. I was having this problem, the dealer reprogrammed the ecu. The TSB has already been applied earlier and nothing has helped for long.
worn bearing in a transmission had to be replaced. Also shuddering at low speeds still occurs, Ford still unwilling to do anything about it.
Shuddering under acceleration, hesitation, poor acceleration and improper gear selection. Software was updated, issue not resolved.
Shuddering under acceleration, hesitation, poor acceleration and improper gear selection. Clutch replaced. Profuse shaking. Previous clutch replacement made car unusable. Clutch had to be replaced, again as the installed unit was badly deffective.
Transmission shudders on acceleration, makes grinding sounds. As with all previous attempts to mitigate this issue it was not successful. The dealer is offering no further solutions and has refused to replace the transmission.
Grind shifting gears. Harsh engagement into drive and shudder on accel. Slide shifts and more. Dealership rebuilt the transmission on one visit, reset computer on another and the last visit I was told that there is nothing more they can do.
Throwout bearing squeal started day after car was purchased. After throwout bearing was replaced, squeal returned next day. Was told to wait until redesigned throwout bearing/slave cylinder assembly was available before replacing again.
Throwout bearing replaced with redesigned part. During repair, unusual wear found on clutch and flywheel. Clutch, pressure plate and flywheel also replaced, but at my cost.
When throwout bearing was replaced by dealer, one of the CV axles was damaged, a differential seal was ruptured, and the carrier bearing shield was not reinstalled. Both CV axles, both differential seals, and the shield were replaced.
Air had entered manual clutch system, causing clutch point to travel and, as a result, making gear engagement difficult (often requiring multiple clutch depression attempts).
Engine wouldn't disengage on first clutch depression. Air leak into transmission fluid system was the problem; temporarily fixed by flushing the transmission fluid. Problem traced to defective slave cylinder; replaced.
Was hearing intermittent high-pitched metallic squealing from the front wheels, along with a fainter metallic jangling. Turned out to be a split axle boot, leaking grease and admitting grime. Dealer recommended replacing; covered by warranty
Reprogram transmission with newer firmware because of shifting issues.
Dealer found leak in transmission during oil change. Dealer removed transmission and replaced a seal and a few nuts/bolts.
Transmission had a shudder and slipped when going into 2nd gear. Dealer ended up resetting computer in car to fix issue. Car now is relearning shifting points.
Shudder in transmission still occurring. Dealer removed transmission and rebuilt. They replaced a few leaking seals and fixed a gear in the transmission.
Transmission shuttered between 1st and 2nd as well as 2nd to 3rd. This is the third time issue has happened.
Dealer ordered parts to fix shutter in transmission. clutches replaced and transmission rebuilt.
Transmission shuttering and trouble going. From gear to gear. Parts received to fix previous shuttering. Took 2 days to replace clutch and associated parts. In working order now.
Transmission shudders and slips between multiple gears. Also transmission does not lock in occasionally almost producing a stall when pulling out into traffic. Not repaired as want a different resolution than what dealer is offering.
Transmission shudder never resolved. Ford would only replace parts, not the whole thing, so problem kept returning. Warranty about to end, traded car.
Transmission didn't shift the way it was supposed to, to a point where it wanted to take off in 3rd, dealer replaced clutch and reprogrammed computer.
Transmission problem came back 1 month later, we traded it in for a new model.
Torn CV boot on left half-axle. Replaced half-axle
Replaced transmission clutch and seal as per customer satisfaction alert
Transmission would flip flop between 1st and 2nd in stop and go traffic. ECM and TCM were reprogrammed and problem was solved.
Removed powershift transmission and replaced dual clutch pack. It took a month to get the part from Ford.
Front end vibration between 55 and 75 mph, only when accelerating. Replaced left half shaft/CV joint. Rides beautifully once again.
Clutch lost friction, replaced entire transmission with a used one because it was cheaper and easier to get at the time than just a clutch. The last clutch I ordered took a month to get from Ford.
The last throw out bearing I put in has had a steady whine to it but after 60,000 miles it hasn't changed pitch so we'll wait and see.
Carrier bearing on right side driveshaft (original) was developing a slight vibration above 50mph. Replaced driveshaft and vibration dissappeared
Full transmission replacement after experiencing rough acceleration, rough shifting, grumbling noises, diminished power to engine.
Was making a clacking noise at certain speeds. New car was pulled off lot to compare. Dealer said all of the Fiesta's do that. No repairs made.
Transmission was loud, jerky, stumbling.
3rd time for the crappy transmission. Ended up fighting with the dealer and traded out for a 2013 Hyundai Sonata with 35,000 miles!
Rough shifting; reprogrammed but needs clutch for auto trans
replaced clutch on auto-manual trans
Replace module & reprogram.
Same trouble with the clutch pack and program.
Replaced the clutch pack.
Flywheel failed. I was sitting in bumper-to-bumper traffic when the engine light and the "limp home" light came on. The Fiesta did make it the additional 50 miles to the dealer. Still hesitates, bursts, tach jumps around, stutters, etc. After the flywheel repair, the car made grinding noises in reverse. It also would shift through all four gears before I got to 30 mph. Returned to the dealer and left the vehicle for several additional days. They said it was a computer prob.
Car hesitates and lacks power.
Transmission still acts up
trans shifted funny
would shift poorly
The clutch pack was leaking so I had it replaced - it was covered under warranty. Was told that this was a common problem with the Fiesta.
Reflashed transmission, noises remain.
The automatic trans. had new grinding and clattering noises. Dealer thought needed repair, but Ford central said (without hearing noises) that "those noises are normal."Weren't there first 10,000, so at my insistence, they authorized repair.
Finally, after much insistence on my part to Ford-- with backup from the dealer that abnormal noises could be heard, the automatic clutch module (of the auto transmission) was replaced and the transmission functioned well without noise.
Replacement of dual clutch
Transmission shudder again
car shudders intermittently after highway run and when stuck in heavy traffic
Grinding and jerking when changing gears especially from 1-2, 2-3
Repeat attempt to fix the grinding/jerking whilst changing gear. Mechanic claims that's normal for this model. Nothing replaced.
Car fell into neutral. Couldn't shift. Then stuck in park until it cooled. Three separate trips to dealer. Nearly 30 days in the shop. All covered by warranty. I was provided a rental.
Transmission seals on input shaft to dual clutch failed. New seals along with new clutches were ordered from Ford. They are currently on back-order, and we are awaiting for them to arrive before car can be repaired. Car is still drivable.
Ford sent out the back ordered 3rd generation clutch-pack needed to repair my leaking input/output shaft leak.
Output shaft #1 and corresponding gearset were replaced. metallic noises from transmission were getting louder and metal was found in gear oil. With the earlier clutchpack replaced, about $4000 in repairs have been covered under warranty.
Fiesta was subject to a recall for bucking and hesitation in the transmission. Software was reprogrammed to see if that resolved the problem. Since then I've noticed a significant improvement.
THE WHOLE CLUTCH ASSEMBLY WAS REPLACED. BUT IT STILL HAS A GEARBOX ISSUE
I thought I heard a small rattling noise from the engine/trans when driving around real slow at 1,500 rpm. Dealer did an inspection, found nothing.
Transmission failure. Covered by a warranty extension from ford.
update to transmission controller
Recall transmission work
The car would not go forward, only would move in reverse. The transmission ground wire did not make a good ground. There is a TSB on this item, but the TSB is only after failure.
Automatic Transmission would not engage to drive car forward after driver 30 high speed miles and stopping. Once placed in park it would not come out of park until engine was turned off and waited 15 minutes. Fix: reprogram transmission.
After driving over 35 miles at highway speeds and stopping car would not go forward or reverse, it was as if car was in neutral. Once car was in park you could not take it out of park. Shut car off, wait ten minutes and then car would go.
Transmission breakdown. Had to replace but Ford has no replacements -- took weeks to get new transmission. Brand new car!
Involved Ford customer service in transmission problem. They offloaded problem to dealer. Service Manager said he couldn't hear noise but transmission tech said he could - service manager won. No Repair authorized - transmission still noisy
Automatic Transmission somtimes does not shift into gear for a long time after accelerator is pressed. VERY DANGEROUS! Sometimes it rapidly alternates trying two different gears but can't or won't pick one.
Problem with transmission not shifting correctly. Had reported problem multiple times but, was told it was supposed to work that way. Received letter from Ford of extended warranty for known transmission problem. Then they fixed it.
Not shifting correctly
The automated-manual transmission continues to behave erratically. Ford, again, said it works as designed. They did nothing to help me.
still having an issue with a hesitant first gear
the work order was left open waiting for an expected transmission recall
Adjustment to rid transmission of shuddering
Transmission shudder and rear main seal seeping oil. Ford Field Service Action No. 14M01 is a warranty extension for this exact issue. Local dealer replaced the clutch, seals and fluid. $1989 parts and labor, all covered by warranty.
Not shifting properly. Jerky acceleration. Would not engage reverse. Service light illuminated. Dealer attempted reprogram of transmission control module. Control module required replacement.
Not exactly sure, but heard the problem was a common one among the '11 Fiestas.

Car is not accelerating appropriately. I press on the gas and the car doesn't move
Car still not accelerating and stopping properly. Cannot drive vehicle on highway safely. Dealer (DaveSinclairLincoln south Lindbergh st Louis mo) says here is nothing wrong with the vehicle.
Transmission rebuilt (clutches and associated wearable parts). Transmission connections (spline/bearings) to front-wheel drive system replaced. Front, driver CV joint replaced.
Would only rev after second gear and wouldn't go into reverse, had towed to dealership, replaced transmission control module (TCM), solved problem - car also shifts much smoother now. Fixed under warranty.
Car wouldn't accelerate after taking an off ramp. After putting car in park and turning off it wouldn't restart or let the gear-shifter out of park. Dealer diagnosed it as a faulty shift module and replaced it free of charge.
Evaluated by dealer in Sept and again in Oct for harshness in Transmission, inconclusive.
Would occasionally get engine malfunction light. Dealer found TSB for this issue.
Loud grinding noise from transmission. Dealer state broken washer allowing gears to rub together, replaced output shaft assembly. An accident might have caused this, as car was hit at rf wheel nine months earlier.
Replaced clutch pack under warranty. I believe it was related to earlier transmission repair as symptoms (vibration at idle) occurred immediately after repair.
Problems with powershift auto transmission. Clutch system had to be replaced completly, but the problem is still there.
Leakage of engine oil into transmission. Clutches had to be replaced but there were no parts available. Got the clutches replaced but the car just isn't the same.
The transmission was doing a strange sound. Dealer stated they needed 5 days to repair it.
The car jerked when shifting gears. The gears it shifted to wheren't always the correct ones. Car's performance suffered because of this.
Transmission control unit, car stopped running, transmision locked in park
Warranty repair of leaking transmission end cap seal. Axle seals found to be damp from fluid, replaced at same time under warranty.
I noticed an oil leak on my garage floor and took it in, apparently, there was a torn CV joint boot.
Manual Transmission Shifter was sticking.
Clutch assembly needed to be replaced, uneven, intermittient shifting (auto) for a few months. (diagnostics 1 day, repair 1 day)
Throwout bearing was making chirping noise. Dealer inspected and determine slave cylinder was defective.
Transmission making a mild gear whine noise at certain loads and RPMs. Dealer inspected and concluded noise was normal to design and operation. (I only had it inspected due to previous transmission repair.)
Throwout bearing was squealing on cold start with clutch pressed in.
Broken left front halfshaft
Broken shifter cable and damaged shift linkages. Dealership's ineptitude made trip as long as it was.
