Another PowerShift Transmission Lawsuit, This Time in Texas

Ford’s “best of both worlds” PowerShift transmission is facing more leagl heat, this time by 28 named plaintiffs in Texas.

the dual-clutch lawsuit alleges the vehicles suffer from a long list of problems including shuddering, slipping, bucking, jerking, hesitation while changing gears, premature internal wear, delays in downshifting and sudden or delayed acceleration.

Where have we heard that before? Oh that’s right, California and Illinois have similar class-action lawsuits on the docket.

This case, however, is the first to add the EcoSport to the list of affected models.
