Ford Territory 2012 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford Territory here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Ford Territory 2012: Transmission recall?
Theoretically, yes the transfer case could cause a clunk from the drivetrain, but without hearing the noise in person it is next to impossible to diagnose. You can find all recalls issued by Ford here.
Ford Territory 2012: Does this model have a timing chain?
Yes, it does
Ford Territory 2012: Transmission failure
All of the things you mention are common problems with the Territory, and the failure of the transmission at 120,000 km is a major one. Having to spend such a large amount of money to repair a car that has only done relatively few kilometres is unacceptable, so I would urge you to persist in trying to get Ford come to the party to cover at least part of the cost of repairs.
Having replaced the transmission it’s perhaps best to keep the car, particularly as it’s been a good one to date, but if you were concerned about the possibility of future costly repairs it would be best to get out of it.
Ford Territory: Transmission oil cooler
It would be a good idea to fit a transmission cooler, particularly if the caravan is a weighty one and the Territory will be working hard.
