It’s great to see the community helping out, flingwing1969; thanks!

And of course this characteristic is described in Ford's sales literature about the Focus' "automatic" transmission, right? Good thing we all live in low-traffic areas where cars are "driven" and not "idled along", just as God and Ford intended.

Those with significant, unresolved clutch shudder will be relieved to know their cars can be fixed. They just have to figure out by whom.
