Actually mine was fine before the latest software update and got worse after it. Just had the clutches replaced last week and we'll see how it goes - too soon to tell yet.

Bottom line is if you want the best combination of power, handling, comfort and technology in the compact segment, and can stand some potential quirkiness of the DCT and / or MFT, the Focus is it.

If you absolutely want to minimize trips to the dealer at all costs and don't mind driving a boring refrigerator, get a Corolla.
