Focus on What’s Important and Claim a Ford Focus Transmission Warranty

If you are an owner of a 2012–2016 Ford Focus or 2011–2016 Ford Fiesta equipped with a PowerShift Transmission, you are entitled to Ford’s extended transmission warranty. Learn more about the entire settlement and the easiest way of claiming this warranty.

What You Should Know About the Ford Transmission Warranty

Ford’s dual-clutch automatic transmission—also called PowerShift transmission—was installed on certain Ford Focus and Fiesta models. This has caused numerous problems to car owners who complained about stalling and shuddering in most of 2012–2016 Focus vehicles. Ford dealt with this issue by extending warranties for these cars. 

Who Is Entitled to the Ford Focus Extended Transmission Warranty?

All people, entities, or organizations with residence in the U.S. or any of its territories and have bought or leased a 2012–2016 Ford Focus or 2011–2016 Ford Fiesta (Class Vehicles) with a PowerShift Transmission have the right to claim the warranty. Even if you purchased one of these models from a private owner or a third-party dealership, you are entitled to the warranty if you meet other requirements.


To qualify for this warranty, you need to have taken the vehicle to three or more services at authorized Ford dealers. If mechanics change a certain transmission part within seven years or 100,000 mi from the car’s delivery to the first retail customer, you are eligible for the warranty.

Is There a Deadline To Claim the Ford Extended Transmission Warranty?

There are two deadlines:

  • If you’d had three or more service visits by April 7, 2020, you should have submitted your claim by October 5, 2020
  • If you had a third service visit for software flashes or hardware repairs following the April date, you would have six months to submit your claim after the last repair
