I don't know about "many people" but my throwout bearing failed after the first 500 miles and essentially "burned out the clutch" requiring the replacement of both at around 750 mi.

IMHO - My Focus was (and still is) experiencing the same grinding issues that everyone's has... except that my throwout bearing was a weaker link than most and really caused it go to hell faster than normal. But since then I've been in the same boat as everyone else.
