2015 RANGER PX XL Hi-Rider Turbo and transmission failure

Post by FordRangerOwner »

Hi,

Just looking for advice on what to do with our 2015 Ford Ranger PX XL Hi-Rider.
We purchased it from a Ford dealer less than 3 years ago with only 80k on the odometer. Was fine and reliable up until a couple of weeks back when it went into limp mode. Took it back to Ford who advised that the Turbo has failed and the transmission is on the way out. They want another $11000 to fix it. Fair enough, these things happen. However, the very place we purchased the car less than 3 years ago is unable to say if our 2015 model ranger with relatively low kms, is worth fixing.

I guess my questions are is the price for the repairs reasonable? Does this have to be done by Ford? Is turbo and transmission failure unusual in this model? Is it indicative of other issues that these repairs won't resolve?

Thanks for any advice or feedback.

Cheers,

Shop around and get more reasonable quotes; Ford dealers are renown to charge like a wounded bull.

Turbo is an easy swap. Upgrade to a g22. Think its a garret g22?? Few bolts undo it swap it out. Get the trans rectified by a transmission specialist. Probably needs a service?? Def not an 11k job.

Definitely go to a auto trans business to get the auto looked at. The transmission is reliable and the main killer is if the torque converter lets go. Not saying it is but it could be just a minor fault.. If metal was present when they dropped the pan then there would be a big problem.

It could happen, but it seems strange that the turbo and trans played up at the same time. The auto trans business i use always look at the engine first.
