    Hi guys! need to know your inputs on this one.

    My friend is selling her Ford Ecosport 2015 Manual Transmission color black, she posted it for 385K but she's willing to sell it to me for just 300K since we've been close friends since elementary. Just want to make sure if this is the problematic ecosport or not cause i see reviews saying that the problematic ones are mostly ATs but not MTs.

    Here are details of the car tho

    year: 2015
    color: black
    mileage: 52,727 (as of 05/13/2022)
    -ceramic coated
    -shell seats leather seats
    all stock

    parts replaced on last tune up ( 03/24/2022)
    brake pads - bendix
    drive belt - AC delco
    change oil - motorcraft 5w-30
    battery - amaron (changed 12/03/2021)
    tires front pair - yokohama (changed 02/13/2021)
    tires rear pair - yokohama (changed 04/23/2020)

    car is very smooth and no visible scratches, owner is a girl na clean freak so i guess that's the reason why. i really think this is a good buy, just want to make sure about the tranmission problems that i might face in the future.

    help me decide guys

    Thanks!

    better have the car inspected.

    car mechanic for used car inspection

    its a Manual, I personally don't see any major issues with it in the next 3 years (it will turn 10 in 2025)

    did she ever change the car's clutch disk?

    open the rear then pull off the rubber seal just above the rear bumper. check if there's a lot of rust in there

    strange that they replaced brake pads so early

    my ecosport is m/t also so no transmission issues

    is this your first car?

    and how good are you when it comes to basic car repairs?

    thanks for this! will check the car on the weekend, but i positively think that it's well taken cared of. knowing it's parked in covered carage and it's ceramic coated

    i do have basic knowledge of maintaining cars, this will be my 4th car (daily drive) if ever i'll go with the purchase. Just want to make sure about the transmission issues of this model.

    No issues sa Ecosport MT models, scary yung sa DCT models.

    If you live within Paranaque area, just bring the car over to FordMaz.

    Went to Manila and borrowed my relative's ecosport. The DCT shudders and makes me headbang everytime I stop and accelerate. 😂

    Irritating nga yan dct nila... nanginginig sa 2nd gear.. parang baguhan na driver tapos mainit na clutch.. hehe

    Actually pag naka full stop ka, nag disengage yan dct ng ecosport.. kaya pag bitaw mo ng brake may slight delay then tapak gas.. ayun.. mag shudder yan
