Jellman 123,

Like many others my Focus transmission is getting smoother as it gets more miles on it. I was aware the Focus had a automated manual transmission. The salesman I purchased the car from further explained how the new Focus transmission is different from the smoother "I can't feel this car shift at all" automatics we are familiar.

I was concerned enough by the difference that I read most of the concerns on this blog.
Glad to read Natasha @ Ford is monitoring these concerns. Thank you. All of us should try to understand these transmissions are different. The upside is that they are very low maintenance and more efficient than the automatics of the past.

Most of these messages have been valid concerns. Note that there are few cars that left a person stranded. Most were it feels like it is...... type comments. I really enjoy my new car as I travel more in it and learn about all the features.
