The "shudder' is common in this type of tranmission and is easy to get used to, but grinding, chattering and sloppy shifting is not. I would like someone to "teach" me how to drive my Focus so it doesn't grind, chatter, shift consistantly and responsively.

People come hear to voice their concerns about problems and try to find answers. There are real problems which I hope we will get answers to other than to learn to get the hang of it.
I was not referring to owners in your situation. Reading your comments you probably have a defective transmission. Why you can't get it fixed or replaced is beyond me.
