In all honesty i worked for ford and all the crap i heard on the new automatics is horrible. I have had my manual for 34k miles and not a single issue. I just think they poorly designed everything to integrate with the auto trans.

I would go manual on these 3rd gen focus cars. after all the crap i have heard about the auto i am glad i ordered a manual and waited the 2 months to get mine when they first came out.
