this new focus blows the others out of the water hands down, except for rear seat space haha. There is one thing I want to know from people ordering Focii, are you getting the dual clutch units or manuals?

I dont mean to rag on such a great new car, but I am hearing a lot of bad stuff about both the drivability and the short term durability of these new autos in the fiesta, and even in some magazine testing of the focus. At least one in four reviews on edmunds of the fiesta complained about failing dual clutch units, as well as chattering/burning clutches and replacements in under 6 months of ownership....any thoughts? (on the upside, I havent read a single negative review about the dealer experience in replacing these units)
