I'm at 3 weeks with my Focus. And so far I really like this car. The MFT has been fine.The surge/lurch from a stop is quite small compared to the surge my 2002 VW Passat had with it's 6 speed auto. It was so bad I wouldn't let any of my kids drive it. And I still love that car. The Focus if it keeps going as it is will be one of my favorite cars. We'll see.
I feel for the people who don't care for their car. I feel your pain. My 2005 Ford 500 was that way, the more I drove it the less I liked it. A truly uninspiring car. It was reliable, comfortable and the mileage was quite good for a big car but it was so meh. The Focus Ti is a very refreshing change. I can see this one being around for a while maybe even a drive into the dirt car.
