Gear Changes Noisy - Fist 2014 and 2016

Postby capetonian » Tue Jan 03, 2017 8:24 am

My wife and I are now the owners of a second Fist - both bought with low kms, the first privately and the second from a local Ford Dealer.
I would be interested to know if other owners have had the same experience as we have had with both cars - namely noisy free play noticeable with gear changes taken slowly at low revs... selecting gears while coasting to a robot or stop street.
The reaction from the Dealer was that it is a "characteristic of the gearbox'...getting a response from Ford S.A. well, that just does not happen!

Many people here have that issue including me (when I had a fist). When I sold the car at 30 000 kms the noise hadn't turned into anything serious.
