I mean even before the grinding stopped. I loved it the first time I sat in it. I mean.. maybe because it's my first new car.... but I love everything about it.

I just happen to be one of the lucky ones that once the update hit and break-in period works out, it became even better.

But absolutely, bad apples happen, that's the reality. It also is a new type of transmission, so some people might not understand the feel of it. Though of course, anyone with a lot of experience would be able to adjust to it.
If they can't, there might be an actual problem.
No worries. I think that the transmission problems are mixed in with driver assumptions that it will behave like a torque converter transmission and they want Ford to make it behave that way. The reality is that the DCT will never behave like a torque converter driven transmission. Frankly, I like it better than a traditional automatic.
