I do not think there are a lot a problems with the DCT. I sympathize with those who are experiencing problems but they are a small minority of all 12 Foci on the road.
You're combining two subjects - dealer service and DCT issues. You said you agree with Riderbike, but I'm assuming that's only with his favorable opinion on customer service since he's been clear about his real DCT issues (specifically one of the clutches which has since been replaced and works fine now). So I assume you disagree with him on the issue of the DCT "problems" being real or imaginary.

Agreed! Looks like Ford may have finally gotten the software right for the most part, or at least as right as we can reasonably hope for. But it was a long bumpy road to get here.
