Between what's on paper and the reality is two things.On paper, the manual is the standard transmission and a 1000$ cheaper,when you go to a dealership you get a different reality.I've bought 10 new cars in 23 years and it's the first time I seen salesman from 3 different dealerships pressuring me out of getting a manual transmission.From the start they tell you,Ford is not making many ,so it's a two months waiting period and then they show you a car with the same equipment you want with the DCT and are ready to sell it for the same price as the manual or even cheaper.I never seen this before.After my problems ,I went to see Mazda,Toyota and Hyundai.I asked for a maual transmission and they either had one in stock or were able to get one in 48 hrs.
Ford was pushing for the DCT and it showed.
