Even recently, I see Focuses advertised as "automatic" trans cars. It's the dealers that need training, and need to know how to respond to customers. When I bought my early 2012 Focus (5-speed manual) I noted to the salesman that I suspected there would be issues with the automated-manual transmissions, and he seemed unsure what I was talking about. There needs to be education all up and down the line. Europeans probably understand the mechanics better than Americans do.
