Ford Extends Actions to Improve Customer Satisfaction Regarding DPS6 Transmission
While newer Focus and Fiesta vehicles with DPS6 transmissions perform well and have competitive levels of satisfaction, we know that earlier versions of the transmission had quality problems.

The vehicles always were and remain safe to drive. However, over the past several years Ford and our dealers have gone to great lengths to make things right for our customers who have been inconvenienced and frustrated by the quality problems because earning and keeping the trust of customers is vital to the company.

We are alerting dealers — and will soon start contacting affected customers — about three additional actions to improve customer satisfaction for those vehicles:

  • Extending the warranty covering the DPS6 clutch and related hardware for certain 2014-2016 model year vehicles, first in the U.S. and Canada
  • Providing an additional chance for the small remaining group of owners who need an important software update to visit a dealer to receive that service
  • And reimbursing customers in these groups who have previously paid for repairs that would now be covered under this warranty

For more information on these actions please refer to the fact sheet.
