Did I hurt your feelings or something Mr. Jaswal?
EU market uses the Dry Dual Clutch version in the 1.6L Ti-VCT Focus automatic/ Powershift, as well as the Russian spec 2.0L at least currently without the same level of complaint as made here. So the same trans is used in europe currently, as well as in Australia, and other places.

Can I say there were no complaints? No, but there doesn't seem to be the same level of whinging and whining in the European press about this vs here on the North American Continent.
