Turbo-Diesel 2011 Ford Focus 2 litre. Whole body shuddered.

Customer Question

Turbo-Diesel 2011 Ford Focus 2 litre. Whole body shuddered. I ended up with low gear and no reverse. Approx. 4 months ago Ford dealership under instruction and after haggling agreed to change the transmission and because of further trouble change the electrical loom. Today the whole thing repeated itself.
JA: How old is the engine? And when was it last serviced?
Customer: As old as the car 2011 with 56,000 klms. on the clock; I assume the service was carried out when the new transmission was fitted approx. 5 months back
JA: Are you fixing your Focus yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I am not touching the car as it is looked after by the dealership (do not wish to name them)
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I am sick and tired of having to be presented with and having to be confronted by these problems with a vehicle that is virtually still new.
