There are known incidents of failure on Australia’s second-best-selling car.

Ford Australia has issued a recall of 15,924 examples of its 2017-2019 Ranger ute (shown above), and 5044 examples of its 2018-2019 Everest SUV due to a fault with the 10-speed automatic transmission.

Included Ranger models were sold between 19 December 2017 and 15 October 2019, while included Everest models were sold between 30 May 2018 and 16 October 2019.

The defect includes 2.0-litre twin-turbocharged diesel four-cylinder engines fitted with the 10-speed automatic transmission.

The recall notice, lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), says the gears inside the transmission fluid pump could fail while driving.

Ford Australia says if the fluid pump does fail, it will lead to a loss of hydraulic pressure in the transmission and may lead to a loss of drive, increasing the risk of accident and injury to occupants and other road users.

CarAdvice has been told there are “a few” known failures in Australian cars, however Ford Australia says it has already rectified “more than 60 per cent” of cars affected.

Ford is contacting owners to organise inspection and repair of the defect.
