2011 Ford Fusion Sport AWD: Transmission Problems


Topic starter

Hi Scotty,

I had been having gear slippage issues with my 2011 Ford Fusion Sport (not a top year for tranny issues). So I took it to a dealer, who has told me that I blew the line, and he won't be able to tell me if the transmission is okay until he makes this repair. Other than the transmission issues, the car is pretty sound. How do I not get fleeced in this situation?

If a transmission cooler line blew you'd be stuck on the side of the road very quickly. Check the fluid level to see if it's low. Take the car to a good independent transmission shop for evaluation. The dealer is very likely to fleece you.


Lose the dealer.
