Unfortunately Ford has a mixed track record on this type of stuff. The '06 Explorer 4.6 V8 had spark plug issues so they redesigned the heads during the '07 model year to solve it (may have affected the Mustang too). Ok great job Ford. But the '06+ Explorer 4.0 V6's had a bad radiator design and to this day owners are still replacing their radiators for the 2nd, 3rd and even 4th times at $500+ a pop and Ford has apparently never issued so much as a TSB on it. Hopefully whatever issues still remain with out DCTs (I think it's mainly the software) fall into the former category.
