What if i do not want the engine system to use up a chunk of gasoline to make certain other folks 2012's do not stall?

I do NOT plan on ever getting this 'fix' if i cann help it.
I am perfectly fine with my manual transmission's functioning.
And yes as a lifetime (47 plus years of driving) manual tranny driver, one can always repeat ALWAYS (with some talent?) get a manual tranny car to start moving forward witn zero application of the foot on the gas.
And the event is NOT going to do ANY damage to a clutch.
(though if you did it ten thousand time it would be a problem...)

((The ritualistic flaming so far in this thread has been funny as Hell.))

Also, the Focus has a small engine. Folks used to a much higher initial torque engine might give the Focus engine a break.
Though if you came from driving small engine European cars, the Focus, in comparison has gobs of torque!!
