What I am trying to find out is the cause of this lag. Is it because the tranny is contaminated is some way?
Agreed as well, thus far, my Focus has been pretty competent. Takes laying into the pedal a bit before it really wakes up, certainly is lackluster if I don't give it much input, but it's not bad. And I'm used to a fully-bolted and tuned Mazdaspeed 3 that was putting 300hp to the wheels, so... if I'm satisfied losing half the power, I feel like it's not a half bad car, lol.
