Unhappy 2012 with 1-2 grind

The trans made noise in 2nd as soon as I got it, drove it home and thought it needed a few miles to break in, holy batman it does not like 2nd gear above 5K rpm unless I pause 2-3 seconds to shift, I'm very disappointed that my 53,600 dollar car has transmission issues.


I hope Ford can fix this. I will stand by Ford if they take care of this.

Grind and Clunk

Hello all,

Bought a red 2011 with 8K on it on 10/18/2011 and noticed the first to second gear grind right away. The car also has a really annoying "clunk" sound when going over small bumps in the road. The car has been at Jennings Anderson Ford since 10/29/2011. Not sure i want to keep it now..Also not sure what i can do about it cause i did not finance with Ford. Going to investigate what can be done tomorrow. The dealership is really pissing me off, at first they told me five days,,,,then it was today,,,,,then tomorrow,,,,,now their telling me won't even be this week.

Just got a call from the dealer....Said they installed all the parts and the car is still not shifting properly. I guess i got to give them props for not returning the car to me still messed up BUT....I want the damn car right... and i don't want to be paying for something i don't have! I called Ford SVT today and they said the dealer needed to get a Field Service engineer to go work on the car! What the hell is that? How about just putting a complete new transmission in the thing..Have PM'd with Deysha back and forth a few times and still not sure if this has been escalated to anyone who gives a ****...I am lucky i guess.... that i have the financial whererwithal to do something stupid if i have to...really would just like my damn car back and the way it should have been from the get go..

Add another disappointed owner being told the 1st to 2nd shift behavior is normal. Dealer verified it happens, factory hotline tells them it is normal under WOT accel. I know I am easily confused, why does this seem more so than usual?

And to add insult to injury, the hotline that has never seen me or the car throws in that possibly driver is not shifting properly. I'm crushed .

Does anyone know, will the factory still support/allow dealers to try and fix the issue, or have they done the math and decided against more repairs? I'll be deciding between a factory fix (not looking good so far), aftermarket (clutch line, shifter, tranny internals, omg why?), or trading for a different set of problems (AMG, CTS V, Chevy, Mopar, etc). The warranty support is telling me to cut losses and trade.

It's been 30 years since my last Ford. A shame, too, otherwise I rather like the car. I guess the wife is right, anyone that buys a Ford can eat it and howl at the moon.

Yep, I'm being told the same eatshit line that this is normal, its total BS copout from FORD.

If they won't fix this right then its BYE BYE Ford. They should be ashamed to sell 50K plus Shelbys that won't shift correctly.

Deysha,

I made appointment with my dealer (Waldorf Ford, Maryland) on Monday, November 21, 2011, to diagnosis the problem with my grinding from 1st to 2nd gear and also the car isnít shifting properly.
I just received a call from my Service Advisor Natalie Dickens stating that they have duplicated and confirmed the grinding issue again with my new complete transmission that was replaced 900 miles ago.
At this point the service advisor is not sure what direction to go to fix the problem, since there is no TSB out to instruct the service tech on how to correct the problem.
Service advisor indicated that Waldorf Ford doesnít have the four (4) special tools to address my transmission problem.
It is my understanding that the following parts need to be replacing in order to fix the problem:
7230 shift fork 1-2
7240/7358 rail, 1-2
7A082/7B331 kit, snap ring
7K316/7M005/7L056 Gear, output shaft, driven 6th gear
7102/7103 Gear, output shaft, 2nd
7146 Gear, countershaft, 6th
7124 Sync asy complete, output shaft, 1st&2nd gear
7025 Bearing kit, input, countershaft &reverse idler gear
7107-A 2nd syncro rings
7107-A 1syncro rings
7L082-AA pads
7B096-A pins
7052-AA Seal
7B340 Nut
7052-A seal
7210-AE shifter

The service advisor is telling me to come pick-up my car, but it sill has the problem and they canít fix it.

Try calling the service manager at Sheehy Ford, Springfield, VA. They did my transmission. They had to get the tools from a local ford technical group in Chantilly, but at least they know how/what to fix and have done it before. Let the service manager know that they did mine (kona blue 2012) and maybe they'll offer to help you out.
