Yeah it is heartbreaking. My family had only bought Fords and Jeeps through the years. I traded in a Jeep for the Fiesta actually. Don't get me wrong. I love the car and all it represents. A peppy economy car with nice styling. It also has great reviews. Even when I saw it today I couldn't be mad at it. Terribly cute. The teeny weeny transmission is adorable.
My problem lies in Ford not wanting to stand behind their product and treating me like I know nothing of cars. Transmission problems never get better. It's insulting to treat someone who just plunked down that kind of money for a product like that.
Hopefully they will rectify the situation and find a way to make it up to me. I will say that the dealer I purchased from is really sympathetic, and are disgusted themselves at how corporate is treating me with this.

I bought my new fiesta in august 2010 and it started doing it after a few months. The same sound when I press the clutch peddal. It was annoyng so I went to Ford service and after telling me that everything is ok, this year they changed the bearing but I'm not sure it is ok, it did the sound again on the reverse... PLS what is your latest experience, did they find out what was wrong and fixed it?

So did they ever resolve this? What was the fix?
#13 of 22 Auto Transmission TSB reprogram

Can anyone tell me what the TSB number is for the 2011 Fiesta auto transmission reprogram? I went to my dealer the other day and he searched under the VIN # of my car and couldn't find anything.
Thank you in advance.

I'm not sure exactly which TSB to reference, as there are several TSBs that affect the A/T based on the symptoms involved. That said, there is a fairly comprehensive list of TSBs for the Fiesta at Fiesta Faction, as well as an active community of owners that may be able to assist. Unfortunately, the community of Fiesta owners here is not nearly so active, and I can only talk to myself so much before people might well be justified in their thinking that I am crazy.

Thank you for your response. I did find a TSB that was titled "Harsh first to second shift", or something like that, on the internet but the outfit that had it wanted $20 for the full information, and I presume the TSB number.
The dealer put the VIN for my car in the computer and couldn't come up with any TSB that described a Harsh Shift. I found that odd.
Anyway, thank you again. I'll keep sniffing around.

I have been told that there is a computer program upgrade for the Fiesta auto trans to aid in it's low speed shifting. I'm also told the change is covered under a TSB so there would be no charge for the upgrade. Has anyone had this done? Is it worth a trip to the dealer?

My mother had it done on her 2011 Fiesta last August and it definitely helped.
