Wanted to post on this. We ran into the shuddering/shaking issue a few weeks ago and took the car in. Reached 15000 miles when it started happening. Dealership found the problem with the transmission and applied 11-12-13. Car runs smooth again (as smooth as the DCT was anyway). Service advisor told me that we should see the plate assembly break-in by 6k-7k miles? Least thats what I took from the convo. But after reading this thread, I hope that I am not back before that...

On another note, I had a Nissan Sentra for a rental with a real automatic in it. After driving the Focus for over a year now I feel like something is wrong with the smoother automatic tranny!
