Fiestas and Fusions have been made in Mexico plant for years . Transmission faults are the same .

" The reports of transmission problems in the Ford Fusion span all years of manufactured models. The varying engine types are all susceptible to the common malfunctions. Issues are cited with 2.3 L engines through the range to 3 L models, and affect both automatic and manual transmissions. "
