I don't understand your point. There are hundreds of posts (if not thousands) in multiple threads on this forum from many Focus owners all over the place all having the same exact issues with dct shift grinding. A couple of owners have been successfull getting ford to buy back their car. These issues have been in the news and have affected Ford's consumer ratings in some cases (consumer reports). My tech reported a number of worn elements in the transmission parts he replaced (worn out after 14k of light city / highway driving). So yes - there is obviously a desighn flaw - we just don't know how serious it is - I'm hoping clutch replacement fixes it cuz otherwise, I love my car.
