I thought about asking this in general but i figured i would start here. Is anyone else experiencing problems? I know it's a dry clutch but i wanted to hear other peoples experience.
My 2012 SEL still has shifting problems after 15K miles and one software update. I had another Ford, the 2003 Mazda 6 that also had terrrible shifting. I wonder if the Focus has another JATCO transmission accompanied similar terrible programming?
