    Powershift transmission law suits

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.freep.com/amp/1119773001 I knew this would come to a head at some point. Ford would be better off doing excellent trade in deals for these cars. Give these customers an insane deal to trade back into another ford without DCT. Fusions or escapes or eco sport. Otherwise the only one that wins are the attorneys.

    Powershift transmission law suits

    I really don’t understand why Ford doesn’t offer these types of owners a no questions asked full market price buy back and a discount on a new Ford. You get a new sale and a happy customer.

    THANK YOU! I don't understand why people want the Bronco to be a Wrangler clone. That's not a good way to do business and just asking for trouble.

    It might be a blessing that your dealer had an issue getting the part because it saved them from tearing it all apart. My dealer got the part next day so the injector was replaced before they released the TSB. I guess it doesn't really hurt anything because I'm not paying for it. I never noticed any hesitation, however coming from a V6 I will say the 4 is a little rougher starting during the stop-start cycle if you use that feature. Anyhow get the TSB done and you'll probably be fine. My transmission was finally shifting smooth by about the time I took it to the dealer. I wonder if it'll have to relearn shifting patterns after the update? I guess we'll see.

    I am awaiting the tech to try the TSB update fix to my Ranger to see if it takes care of the bad injector issue. My truck had very noticeable hesitation at lower speeds. I’m glad I ain’t the only one dealing with this problem. Misery loves company.

    Powershift transmission law suits

    It's not just the US, Ford is treating these customers just so terribly, in Australia they were forced by the courts to do the right thing and repair a vehicle that seems to be unrepairable. At one point Ford Aust. was trying to charge these customers another $7,000 to trade into a new 1.5 EB Focus with 6F35 auto... And now they wonder why no one wants Ford's cars and SUVs, the only thing that sells is Ranger and Mustang, all the rest are less than 400/mth each

    ...because Wranglers are piling up in dealers' lots?

    Canned 5 months ago as part of Hackett’s cost cutting , I guess now that Hackett said it’s happening, they will have to restart it.....

    Bad Fuel Injector 2019 Ranger

    He will perform the tsb first and see what happens.

    1. You see the progression on Ranger sales increase, 2,100 2,900, 4,600, 5,700.....what next, 6,800/7,200? and all against strong selling Tacoma and Colorado 2. Tacoma has built up its own ecosystem of return buyers, a bit like F150 so it's "immune" to the effects of a new player, I'd say that other minor brand sales are taking the hit at the moment as Ranger nudges its way back in.... 3. Jeep is saying that its dealers are holding over 25,000orders for Gladiator, I'd believe that but after that, how much sales depth is not known and whether that come at the cost of Wrangler sales is also not known When you think about it, the '19 Ranger is a place holder that doing a good job of reviving the name and positioning the truck for its much better replacement in a couple of years time, that's when the surge from Bronco and NG ranger will really hit.

    Ordered: 2020 Aviator

    Congratulations! I just ordered mine today!

    It's always possible it could be a miss. The market will dictate that. I think it will be a success but there are a lot of variables. Also, if you think 50hp and 200 torque is a little extra, what do you think is a lot? It also includes some addition options on the ICE reserve as standard. My prediction is this will easily out accelerate the ICE version to 60 by 1 second. Yes, that would put it in the really f'ing quick territory. Not Tesla quick but getting there. That's just my guess based on current what we know so far. We'll find out soon enough as Chicago production has just started for Explorer/Aviator. Just think for a moment based on what we have currently. The FWD biased current (heavier, 6 speed and torque managed) Explorer Sport accelerates to 60 in 6 seconds flat (roughly). Add 35hp and 50lb/ft torque, plus rwd bias, and robust 10 speed to lighter platform and that could shave 4-5 tenths off. Now add another 50hp and 200lb torque. It's entirely possible that the GT breaks into the 4's. That's pretty fast for a 3 row SUV for a whopping 68k. Now what does this all mean? Nothing really but it just goes to show that the Aviator GT has the potential to have performance to back up that 10k uptick in price, all while giving you some of the benefits of a PHEV. I think that sounds like a win.

    C'mon kids, what did we just learn from the new F150 thread? Those Bronco's are loaded-up in a semi and headed to Denver, probably Utah too, so FLT can get a sneak preview,,,,, HRG

    Today was Ford's annual shareholders meeting. Michael Martinez works for Automotive News and covered the event. The twitter quote about the hybrid Bronco is from that meeting. The Detroit News reported the same thing.

    I am split on the whole SFA/IFS direction. We have two Wranglers in our household. Both lifted. The first is a 98 TJ with a 4" lift and the other is a 2018 JLU with a Mopar lift. Jeep has a well documented issue with their SFA and death wobble, steering wandering, etc. They have numerous "fixes" in the pipeline. Ours has already received a new stabilizer shock and a tracbar. With 6,000 miles on it- and prelift. Big forum argument about the Bronco right now. Several owners are chomping at the bit to see it. They want the "lifestyle" vehicle but don't need the hardcore capability of the SFA.

    don't know how many times I have said it...but from an insider...a SFA WILL be available for those that feel the need, most likely through Ford Performance, me, as small a percentage as the vehicle wold be used "hard-core" Id rather have something more ride friendly on a day to day basis.

    I miss the big rig look it has had, but it looks far better then the Chevy or GMC products.

    They have that dash really covered. I’m hoping it’s going to exceed the interior of the new ram. The Ram is the only other truck I would even remotely consider. Actually, not really. Raptor all day for me. But the Ram is a good looking truck. Good job to them.

    Torn on the whole IFS debate, because a well tuned IFS could be better, if losing some "macho" points in the process. I want the Bronco to be genuinely capable off-road...but I don't know if trying to out-hardcore the Wrangler is the best way for the model to succeed.

    More likely it's a group of engineers trying to prove they're humans and not robots by having a little fun.

    Could it be because of this? "This Bronco wears the same license plate as the one in our last set of spy shots, and it doesn't look any different."
