After stories like this, I am glad I purchased the Ford ESP 7yr/100k $0 ded warranty!

Well, the warranty isn't needed for the iCVT. They all have a minimum of 100k. I will purchase one also if I decide to buy out the lease, but I will do it because of the stuff that isn't covered by the Hybrid warranty.

I have 7 year 125k on mine, had to make it 125 not 100k as otherwise I'd get to 100k before 7 years!  Makes me covered until September 2020.

Which state are you in? For CARB states, the iCVT is warranted to 150K. Obviously the dealer believes you are in a non CARB state.

I think the C in CARB is for California. I'm in West Virginia.

 

And then you just got yours replaced, so chances are you're done with that forever, I can't see it failing twice in the same car.

Of course it is the transmission not the car that is the controlling factor where odds are concerned. Like Levi, I wonder how often this happens. There are three in this thread, but this is where we all bring problems so not really indicative of a trend. Still, I can't get passed only 72,000 miles on a transmission--only 59,000 on original poster Marcin's.

Know that you only hear of the problems here, all the other people having reliable cars don't ever post here and say I got 50k on my transmission and its still good!  You know what I mean, its mostly bad news that gets posted.

There are a number of states that have chosen to follow CARB, but West Virginia isn't one of them. It isn't just California - states get to choose to follow either Federal or CARB standards.

Mine failed at 98K, but the noise started about 800 miles before I decided to replace it, wasn't sure I could make it another 1k mi. back home. :wink:  I assume the new Trans has the problem solved. :smile2:

I did not know this. Thanks. Too bad WV doesn't follow California. We're a coal state, so Fed. standard is probably weaker.

When this issue starts occurring, does the noise occur on all speeds?  My friend is experiencing a howling noise that if I understand correctly lasts for a few seconds at a time, and I heard it twice while she was lightly accelerating around 30mph.  After reading various posts I'm concerned her transmission might need to be replaced too, but I don't want her to waste time going to dealerships unfamiliar with the situation in SoCal.
