What do you think of the Powershift auto gearbox in the Ford Kuga?
I'm thinking of buying a new Ford Kuga with the Powershift auto box, but have heard various adverse reports about reliability and performance of these boxes. I would be very grateful for your opinion.
Like VAG's 6-speed DSG, it's a wet clutch box that needs fresh fluid and filter every three years and most of the problems seem to stem from owners thinking they can get away with not having this done. The 6-speed dry clutch Powershift in the Fiesta, Focus and B Max was more problematic. Lot of trouble with clutch packs. As far as I know, the 1.5 EcoBoost petrol engine in the Kuga comes with a 6 speed torque converter box if ordered as an auto. It's only the 2.0 TDCi that comes with the Powershift.
