Hey guys, check out my previous post here [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] which explains the typical sounds you might expect from the fiesta transmission. I've driven a friend's Polo Tsi before and it also has similar experience since Polo is also using dry clutches. Just drive the car normally and it'll run-in in no time. Smile

HoHoHo ! I just read the post. I am relief now. I had the same issue. I thought gone lah my car .. hahaha ... and the trailer-jerking stuff. Yes when in traffic jam I used to on and off accel ... it jerks like what you mentioned in the post. So it is normal right ... Smile

My car now has 800km ++ and I am driving on 100 - 110km/h sometimes ... it is okay right ... when reach 1000km I can drive often on 90 - 110km/h right ?

I got my Fiesta on 13 July and drove off the dealer site like normal. Then, at first night already rev to 5.5k RPM on highway to try the acceleration!

I drive 80% city and 20% highway most of the time with average 40KM back and forth to my office, occasional lunch outings and gf house. Now clocking about 2500 - 3000KM since I find myself like to drive the car for no apparent reason Smile

The owners' manual stated try drive at different speed for the first 1000 miles, which is 1600KM. If you need to encounter typical city traffic on daily basis with occasional highway sprint on weekends, then your Fiesta run-in easily in few weeks. Btw, do remember to check your gearbox from time to time for oil leakage (quite infamous among our cars). You can look at the bottom of the gear box, it should looked clean and something like this [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

My FoFi (Stitch) got to 1000km dy. Tried Test Run on BKE highway. Average speed 160km/h - 200km/h. Top speed 220km/h. There was no lag of power. Could not hear anything xcept own tire sound from outside when radio is off. PoLo came in to join the fun run and it was win win situation for both ... had a great drive. Seriously fun and love it. Handling was awesome ..... Kia Forte tried to catch up but failed ... I am not sure 1.6 or 2.0

200kmh? Did you mod your car? As far as i know, i tried once and the car is limited to about 190kmh in stock form. That Forte must be 1.6, otherwise a 2.0l model can catch up and beat us in top speed if given enough time and distance.

Does it looked like oil? If so, you should drop by to the nearest SC and ask them to deal with it. Mine looked like a gel-like stuff, not oil, and it was like that for one whole month. I placed some old newspaper underneath the car and don't see any leakage. I also tried touch those bottom part and don't see anything wrong.

btw, you can refer to these threads regarding the tranny oil leak but posted from mat salleh area.

Randy, you should quickly go to SC and have them fix it.

Guys, you can check your Fiesta's manufacturer date and stuff like that at
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] just key in your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number, or aka chassis number) which you can find it on your front passenger windscreen area.

For example, mine is built on either June 3rd or March 6th cause the date is in 06.03.2012 format, version 30, not too sure which one.

I didnt bother about 1k km service as the manual stated 1st service is 10k km. I remembered there are other members did service around 1k to 3k km and paid about 200-300 something for oil and oil filter change. Maybe you can look around at older threads under maintenance section.

Went to the SC just now..they said the oil seal might be broken, they just wipe it and ask me drive few days see whether still leak or not..if leak, they will change the seal & clutch together..need to park for 1-2day(s) & need 2-3 week(s) to order the oil seal..

Service @1K KM need RM330. Engine oil + filter.

Which SC did you go and how are their services? And about the spare parts, yeah, that's the downside of having fiesta, need to order parts from Rayong, Thailand. If not mistaken, I think Thailand plant needs to order parts from Getrag since they shipped the whole transmission unit to the assembly line. I've checked Getrag's website at [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and looked under 'Global Presence' and found out mechatronic parts and dual clutches for Ford's Powershift are produced at Germany, Italy, Slovakia and Mexico.

Could you check your vehicle build date at [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Just key in your VIN/Chassis Number but the website could be painstakingly slow randomly.

Randy, do you get to see what kind of engine oil Puchong SC used? I know is Castrol but not sure it is Edge (5w40?) or Magnatec a1 5w30 (what i heard from other Ford SCs).

My car 20000km, have been complaining about the gearbox sound when shifting gear esp gear1-3 since day 1 and each time I visited the service center they said it is normal to have such sound for dry dual clutch. Good luck.
