I have 2 2012's Foci, mines a Hatch the wife has the sedan. Love them both. Both have the DCT, but no MFT. Cant give you inputs on that feature. But as far as reliability so far so good. Nothing jerky in the transmissions on either of them. Storage is fine. Just did a 800 mile round trip drive over the holiday and we were both comfortable hauling the luggage plus a 11 week old in the car. (thankfully he slept 90% of the way!!!) and we had plenty of space left over. on a side note we did average 37 mpg for the trip, if you were wondering about how it does in real world situations on gas mileage. I have to say it is doing better than the 2011 F250 i had that they replaced! 1 regret.... not waiting till the dealer had the ST on the lot when i did the 2 for 1 deal when they took back my 250!

PS i did change the stock exhaust to a custom 2.5" cat back system and modified the intake/airbox. But still getting great mileage!!
