Bought my Titanium in August 2011 and have absolutely loved every minute of my ownership. MFT is technology and as everyone with a computer can attest, there's always a glitch or two, but 98% of the time it's flawless. I've found of the 2% of the issues I have, if I just have a little patience, the system works itself out within 5 minutes or so. In talking to the Ford rep here, they indicate the issues with MFT stem from the interface with Sirius traffic/weather and since that has expired I've had zero issues.

As for the DCT, the 'shudder' issue (in my case) is avoidable. It only happens when the engine is cold, first thing in the morning and when I go up a hill. I downshift to a lower gear and it doesn't occur. After that one adjustment in the morning I don't give it a second thought the rest of the day.

I have an Android Charge and it works great for calls and listening to music via Bluetooth. It will fail to connect on occasion but that can be fixed in just a couple screens. Again, it's technology.

Bottom line, if technology is your enemy, stay away from MFT. If you can deal with it pretty easily, MFT is a dream.
