Ford Ecosport 1.0

Postby [email protected] » Fri Oct 16, 2015 7:49 am

Howzit guys

My mom has the Ecosport with the 1L ecoboost engine, when you pull away there is a noise coming from the left side (hard to describe how it sounds, almost like a rattle sound) it is not very loud and it is only in first gear. Obviously i need to take it to Ford but just wondered if there is someone on here that might experience the same or similar. :-k

Gearbox problem? I know they have replaced a few under warranty, but do not know exactly what the problems are

Yeah difficult to say and to explain how it sounds, can record a video but you have to know what to listen for, guess the best thing to do is take it to Ford. Car have less than 10000km on the clock.

The first one that I was aware of where they replaced the box, drove from Germiston to Knysna to Germiston +- 4500 km on the clock. It also never did any heavy traffic at all. It received a new gearbox before the number plates

So the car went in at Ford, they said it is the gear linkage cable ordered it and they replaced, and happy to say the problem was sorted out. Thanks for everyone's comments.
