Steve, I have 12,000 miles and it still has the problems. see the ford focus facebook page posts to talk to other folks that have it, as well as review the many posts here.
Also don't be convinced when people say it is normal for this type transmission.
I owned a VW GTI with the same type trans and it did NOT do this.
Consumer reports is very unbiased and mentioned this problem in all their reviews.
When something is enough to cause your passengers to ask whats wrong, something is wrong.
Ford cares and they will fix this.
