Focus Problems With Tranny.

Purchased my 2012 Focus hatchback SEL in September of 2012. After having the vehicle less than a week the car began to almost jump into gear after starting the engine. I took it into the dealership and they informed me that this was a temporary issue while the clutch breaks in (of course after the return window). I now have a little over 7K miles on it, and nothing has improved. It has also began to hesitate to the point where the car is shaking and feels like itís stalling. Today it was the worst, I was 200 miles from home and thought i was going to need a tow with how bad the shake was. I am planing on taking it into the dealership one day this coming week for the second time. If I bought a standard vehicle I could understand the behavior of the vehicle, but ford is calling this an automatic. Why won't Ford put a recall in place and fix the problem?
