Are people just not happy with the trans, or is there another reason people are trading them in right at that mileage? Not an urgent issue, I just find it strange
As others have said, fleet rentals. Even the early pre-orders have only been out for around 20 months now (I got mine in early April, which was way before most got theirs).

And as others have said, I'd stay away from an automatic. If you know how to drive stick, get one of those. If you don't, learn how. I don't know what the percentages are, but there are many complaints about the transmission both in the Focus and Fiesta forums. Stick with a stick.
