Ford Fiesta: Powershift Slapped With A Power Fine!

By  | 

There have been a lot of complaints made on the Fiesta’s PowerShift gearbox but even that is not enough to push Ford into resolving the issue in an efficient manner.

While Ford may offer a free fix for the problem, they never budged into making the necessary recall for the Fiesta until they received a lawsuit threat. Well, it’s too late to regret that now because the company had just been handed a $10 million fine over in Australia.

Ford Australia confirmed on this earlier today and the authorities in the land down-under classified the penalty under unconscionable conduct over the problematic PowerShift gearbox equipped on the Fiesta.

$10 million may not sound like much for a mega-corporation like Ford but it should be enough to push the carmaker into improving its handling of future cases.
