David Seaborne ASKED THE GUIDE

Ford Focus 2013: Is the transmission reliable?

I was wondering if you have heard of problems with the autos in the late-model Ford Focus. I believe it is a DSG by Getrag similar to that in the Volkswagens where there were problems. We've just bought a 2013 model with 15,000km, hence the concern.

There are known problems with the double-clutch gearbox in the Focus and there is a class action under way from some unhappy owners. But I have had success for several CarsGuide readers in getting their cars right.
