Most of the time when I hear of low speed drivability, not clunking and grinding, I think it could be someone not familiar with the computer automated adaptive learning dual clutch six speed manual transmission in the new Focus. It takes some getting used to and learning how to deal with its idiosyncrasies. I think this is the case most of the time when people complain about the DCT, not to say there aren't some defects out there. I would not ditch the car until I figured out which it is, and it can usually be figured out fairly quick.
