Hi.
Apologies if this has already been covered.
I have just bought a 2013 1litre EcoBoost with manual transmission.
I’ve noticed that every so often the gearbox can seem notchy.
I wondered if anyone else had encountered a similar problem or it’s know to be a problem? I know the automatica had a bad reputation.
I got it from a Ford dealership.
Thanks in advance

How many miles on the clock? Clutch might be a bit worn or possibly a previous owner may have abused it a little. Have not come across many issues with the manual gearbox at all.

Hi Buddyboy,
I have a 2012 1litre EcoBoost with manual transmission with just under 30,000 miles on the clock, and I have found that the gearbox can seem a bit notchy sometimes particularly when trying to engage 1st or 2nd gear.
Ford cars always had a reputation for smooth gearboxes.

Regards.
