Sounds exactly like what just happened to me with my 2013 FFH 66K Miles. For how long does the warranty cover tranny? I read 60K (just my luck), but I'm seeing other things on this thread. Please help, thanks

I also had to have my transmission replaced on my 2014 SE.

Mileage was 42900.  I bought the car in Sept 2014 and in March 2018 I noticed fluid on the driveway.  I took it in for service and they replaced the left seal.

The next day the car was still leaking.

Took it back and they replaced the left axle and the left seal.

The next day it was leaking again.

So when I took it back the third time, they just said "We are going to replace your transmission"

Besides the leaking, I had noticed a very faint whine at low speed but not enough to make me take it in.

 

Now (Sept 2018) I have a "Stop Safely Now" issue.

I'll post that info in another thread.

I am also a person who is currently in the process of getting this problem fixed.

 

Stats: 2014 FFH, 96k mi, All recalls up to date.

Problem: Grinding/rubbing noise coming from front of car on deceleration (letting off gas pedal) when in EV (ICE is not running). This is usually when under 40 mph, very noticeable in town/neighborhood where the car should be silent.

Happens: Regardless if brakes are being pressed or not, whether AC/Air is on or not.

 

I am the second owner and bought in 2016. Luckily I purchased an extended warranty, but I am nearing the end of it (due to mileage, not time). I am within 1000 miles of end of warranty (sweaty face)!

 

THANKS TO THIS WEBSITE I was able to diagnose that THIS was the problem based on google searching for "2014 FFH noise on deceleration."  Knowledge is power, and I was very happy to be able to have a rough idea of what my problem was prior to walking in to the dealership for service. Like I said, luckily I am still under warranty, because if I had to sell my car at nearly 100k miles, I wouldn't be able to get what it is still owed on it (another sweaty face).

 

I just dropped it off at the dealership this morning. They said that my warranty only pays for a rental for 5 days, so I settled for a shuttle home, and I expect to drive my (extremely poor MPG) old truck to and from work for the next week plus. I am lucky to have a 2nd vehicle, but I commute roughly 60 miles total per day in congested traffic conditions and my hybrid is my logical solution to sitting still in traffic: My thought when driving ICE cars, "my engine is running and i'm not going anywhere!" (hair tearing out!). Like my username says; i love my fusion hybrid!

 

I'm still waiting on the official diagnosis, but they said that the symptoms I was reporting do line up with the transmission problems that I found in my research.

 

I know this is an old topic, but I wanted to join and post about it (to return the favor), as this site has helped me so much already.

I will update when I get word from my dealer. Hoping for good news.

Rehashing an old thread, but I'm the OP and wanted to provide a new update.

 

Fusion Hybrid has driven fine for the last 4 years, though severely under powered when going up hills.  That said, we've taken care of it and it's been just small things over the last 65k miles.  The car currently has 82k miles on it and we took it into Ford's Quick Lane for the "works" service late last week.  Service adviser called to let us know that the maintenance was completed, and that the car was in immaculate shape, with green check marks across the board during their standard inspection.

 

I take the car home and I start hearing what I thought were squeaking noises as I pulled into the garage.  My initial reaction, without much thought, was that the shocks may need to be replaced.  I don't drive this car much, so I wanted to ask my wife if she's noticed this in the past.  Before I get that chance, she drives it to the store that evening.  She comes home and says "The car is broken, it's grinding metal on metal as I pulled up the street".  Crap, WTF!  I'm thinking that the maintenance crew must have screwed something up during the tire rotation or brake inspection, it had been driving just fine before the maintenance.  We leave the car in the garage for a day, and then take it back to Quick Lane on Saturday.  During the trip to the shop, I can hear occasional metal on metal noises, what I'm interpreting as either a suspension or possibly rubbing brake pad/rotor noise.  We do a short road trip inspection with a mechanic, and the noise while present, isn't nearly as obvious as it was on the way over.  The shop says they'll have their master mechanic look at it on Monday.

 

So the call comes in a few minutes ago.  Not a suspension or brake issue.  It's a transmission problem, and until they open it up they don't know what is going on.  They're going to take it across the street to the dealer, and it'll be a few days before the mechanics can look at it.  This is the same dealer that did the original transmission replacement back in 2015.  I'll update the thread once they let me know what's wrong...

severely under powered when going up hills.

I don't experience that at all with my 2015 FFH. Lots of hills here.

The engine revs up big time, to the point where I feel like I need to back off the gas.  I know it's not a normal transmission, but 2 or 3 people in the car, going up a 8% grade, and there's no power at all.  I've got a 2016 Hyunda Sonata Plugin, no problems at all with that car.

From what you wrote, it seems that it's always been that way for you. Which sounds to me like something has always been wrong with your 2014 FFH. In particular, I remember one recent time in Palm Springs, three people in my 2015 FFH with my BMW-driving friend in the back seat, driving up the pretty steep road to the mountain tram when my friend remarked how effortless it seemed for the car.
