This is simply not true, among many other things, the Fusion doesn't use the poorly executed DCT.
I have owned about 18 Ford vehicles and the Focus was the absolute worst one that I have owned. All of my other Fords had typical few issues if any at all, nothing like the continued visits to the shop for the Focus. Shame because it's a neat car otherwise.
Ford has many other good vehicle to offer, hense his loyality.
Hope the OP gets it worked out, much luck to you since many of these vehicles are the same giving Ford more leverage.
