If the transmission has been improved or not, with less 2013 cars on the street you would see less complaints.
+1. Roughly speaking there are over 300,000 2012 Foci on the road and at the most 100,000 2013s. For that reason alone you'll see fewer 2013 complaints. But the '13s hit the ground running with the latest hardware and software updates that have been trickled out to certain '12s so you'll see fewer complaints for that reason too.

But there have been several '13 owners on here that have complained of some of the same things as us '12 owners.
