    The newer generation Ecosport uses the 6spd AT but nobody noticed as it got drowned by the bad experience a lot of people had with the DCT of the previous generation.

    I had a Fiesta before with the same DCT but thank goodness I never had issues with it even up to the time I sold it. Even the new owner didnít complain. DCT just behaves differently in the low gears, much more like MT compared to traditional AT or CVT.

    Probably Pandemic stress.
    Ford stressed several things including comfort, so don't expect it to behave like a stiffly sprung Euro Ford.
    Learning the easy shortcuts should help. Testing a car for a short period and owning one are two different things.

    Getrag made Ford's phased-out dry-clutch DCT.
    I Google searched the transmission of the new Ford Territory, it uses a Punch Powertrain VT5 CVT, same lineage as the VT1 CVT of the 1st gen (BMW-developed) MINI of the 2000s.

    he still needs the income. I don't think he will change his reviews for other cars just because he gets some mazda coins.

    But he could have done it in a more civil manner, instead he used what to me was a very unconventional way of putting an honest review. He's right it was brutal, as it points out the defects according to him, but it was also too brutally conveyed. I admit, I am one who is now 100% into getting this one as my next ride, which is why I take time to read as much as I can, I even read on power punch history, good points from everybody here. As of today, my fervor has been reduced to 50%. I will need more info going forward before I pull the trigger. Sir babkalakal put it straight forwardly, some people are willing to take the plunge... well, I was, but now... need to balance things muna hehe

    some characters have changed to get more views. "to be or not to be"

    looking at this vehicle can be be both objective and subjective.

    That is the "default" Ford Spiel to get you to quiet down once you start experiencing issues and they hope you are outside the warranty period once the transmission fails.

    I've personally heard this spiel when I went with my uncle to Ford Q Ave for his Ford Focus 1.8 and Ford Fiesta (I think it was 1st gen that came here, or maybe 2nd gen - i am definitely sure it was with the DCT)

    Ginawa nila lahat "yun". Yung pag reset, pag "update".

    Kesyo may way to operate properly. The only way I found to remove the shudder at low speed crawls in traffic is to automatically shift to Manual mode so the tranny holds gears properly.

    For his case, Ford Focus had the transmission failure, pinagawa lang sa labas with the help of a Ford Mechanic na "pinakinausapan" para mabalik lang to a running condition.

    His Fiesta was Flooded though.

    Both sold after the headaches.

    This is why I can't trust Ford's preferred DCTs, even after claims (previously) it is better/updated.
