It doesn't help that Americans have been brainwashed by shitty automatics that trade in performance and efficiency for simply being very smooth but if the consumer isn't willing to learn about what they bought on their own I can't fault Ford for that.[/QUOTE
You want to hear about complaints just ask... the transmission was just 1 of about 10 that were never resolved again not 1 issue was ever resolved.....our dct was so bad you could not put a cup of coffee in the cup holder without fear of it be spilled from the shaking now tell me it was me or my wife just not knowing how to drive it.....I have been in the car business for 32 years so I think I know when a car has some major issues and the 2012 focus has some major issues....want to talk about steering issues???? what are you going to blame those on the weather.....B-lou
Oh of course, lets trust your expert opinion because you've been in the business for 32 years.

You also must've hated BMWs SMG, if you had even driven it.

Sequential manual gearbox. We just happen to have 2 of them put together to form a dual clutch gearbox.

If you think Fords DCT is the only one with such issues you need to add onto your "automotive" experience.

You missed the point that this isn't the only modern DCT with issues. Far from it. Even seasoned units from VW, BMW and Audi have issues.
