It has happened to me, lunging is what your describing. Ford call's it "trailer hitching" and claims it's "Normal". They will probably give you a two page memo with all the details on what they consider "Normal" and tell you that your clutch needs to break in, even at 10K miles + they may pull that on you.

The moldings falling off, don't know what to say about that. Not reassuring to me and my Focus purchase since I am only have DCT issues currently.
