I have a DCT in my focus and I like it a lot. I haven't any issues with my trans, as some have had (knock on wood). I do like to be able to click through the gears on the highway to pass quickly or drop it into 6th just to cruise, or leave it in auto for driving around town. The DCT for me was a great choice.
When I get out of school, and get a real job(lol), I plan to take a look at a new mustang. That will most certainly have a real shifter to row through.
