Ford Puma (2019 -): what are its most common problems?

The Ford Puma is a small multi-energy crossover that arrived with us in 2019, to make people forget the rustic and dreary Ecosport. Are there any failures or issues to watch out for?

The Puma is a Ford’s iconic model. An appellation launched in 1997 in the form of a small two-door coupé. It had made its comeback on the market in the form of a small SUV in 2019, which quickly found its audience. Despite its sporty lines reminiscent of the original coupé, it is based on the technology of the small Fiesta. Carrying similar engines and chassis. Since its launch, it has been a real success as than an alternative to l’Ecosport, which failed to seduce European consumers because of its rustic lines and its very low cost aspect (it had initially been designed for emerging countries). Second-hand on the market, it is easy to find one of these models on recent occasion. Before you buy, here’s what you need to know about its possible failures

A very extensive motor offer

The Puma offers a range of engines that could be described as multi-energy : diesel, gasoline, micro-hybrid and ethanol ! On the diesel side, it is equipped with a 120 horsepower 1.5 EcoBlue block associated with a 6-speed manual gearbox. For the petrol engines, the three-cylinder 1.0 EcoBoost of 125 and 155 horsepower are equipped with a 48V micro-hybridization. They can be mated to a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed automatic. The 125 horsepower version does not offer a hybridization system, but is compatible with bioethanol. It is only available in manual transmission. Finally, the three-cylinder 1.5 EcoBoost with 200 horsepower is reserved for the sporty ST finish and constitutes the most powerful engine styling the range.

A few tablet bugs…and that’s it!

Imagine that the Ford Puma, has no major issues or failures since its launch! And it is rare enough to underline it! By taking over the platform, the engines and the main technical aspects of its little sister fiestathe Puma avoided the problems generally encountered by models created from scratch. Its only major innovation was the mild 48V hybridization offered on the 1.0 EcoBoost engine. Despite this, no problem has been reported concerning it. The only thing to point out: some bugs on the touch pad dedicated to infotainment. But nothing that is not reprogrammable in the garage. The Puma is therefore, a rare thing, exempt from failures. This is what explains, among other things, that he does full box in France and Europe!
