if ford truly is putting all their resources into fixing this problem, it's not working and so they need to take a diff tack... perhaps something as radical as doing away w/ the dct.. who knows?
They should do a lot better than this for sure. There is no reason Ford has to put a $2,500 rebate on this car (that is a relatively new design). They could of spent some of the rebate money on fixing the transmission. I agree with doing away with the DCT. If Ford does not want to deal with the problems, then put in a torque-converter (even a 6F35, with its own problems) automatic and call it a day.
