~8,000 miles and loving it!
I have seen so many negative feedback (in the US market) about the powershift.
Coming from a mazda protege 1.6L auto (which is named Ford Lynx from where I am), I switched to a Focus mk2.5 (2011) TDCi Powershift (Its a Diesel) and loving all 136 horsies and 235ft-lb power it provides!
There's significant difference in the 'feel' but in the end, you'll get used to it.
I agree to many posts here that its all about knowing how the tranny works and how it behaves from a given throttle input.
Anyway, the 2013 (petrol/gasoline) variant just came out here and havent tried it. I'm hearing good feedback about it (including very good fuel consumption on heavy Manila traffic)
