Ford Kuga 2013 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford Kuga 2013 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Ford Kuga 2013: Automatic transmission problems
It’s a dual-clutch auto similar to the ones that gave so much trouble in other models. As you say an auto transmission should last more than 80,000 km, it’s worth pursuing a claim for a replacement transmission.Show more
Ford Kuga 2013: Should the differential last longer than five years?
You’re correct that a diff should last longer than six years, but how long it should last is open to question. To its credit Ford has offered to pay a portion of the repair cost. They won’t pay the whole cost of the repair as you have had six years of use out of the diff, and it’s now worn as a result of that use. There is no hard and fast rule that applies to your situation. The offer from Ford is based on the amount of wear and the projected life of the diff. You’re best to negotiate with Ford and hold out for the best deal you can get.Show more
Should Ford or the dealer fix the gearbox on my 2013 Kuga?
It’s the responsibility of the dealer you bought it from to repair it, he’s the one issuing your warranty. The automatic transmission in Fords has been an ongoing problem, and it would seem that the transmission in your car needs to be replaced. The bottom line is you need to sort it out with your dealer, if that doesn’t result in a satisfactory resolution go to VCAT.Show more
Shuddering and clunking in Kuga
We haven't had any other reports of problems like you have experienced. You don't say what engine you have, but if it's a diesel you have the Powershift automatic transmission, which has been troublesome in other Ford models, such as the Focus.Show more
