People really don't proof-read anymore.
I recently wrote an instruction manual for a product - and I'm pretty sure no one else read it except for the translator. Grammatically, it was fine, but I went into way too much detail (perhaps as suss is suggesting Ford do) on fool-proofing it so that the consumer wouldn't get injured as well as all of this technical mumbo jumbo that I eventually reworded it in layman's terms in the Revision B.
Not that it matters - the manual could say that the car runs on pixie dust and since no one reads it, no one would ever know.

I edited it for the sake of brevity and clarity.
The power driving the car comes from the wheels while the fuel is shut off. If you were to have a hybrid style power monitor it would indicate the power was flowing towards the engine instead of to the wheels. Hence the "reverse" comment which wasn't as clear.

|kam327||Suss your phrasing was a little unclear though overall I think we understood. When I went back to reread it to make sure I didn't miss something... It was gone. But no usual note that your post had been edited. Perk of being a moderator I guess? Nice.|

PowerShift Fuel Efficient Transmission
Your vehicle has been designed to improve fuel economy by reducing
fuel usage while coasting or decelerating. When you take your foot off
the accelerator pedal and the vehicle begins to slow down, the torque
converter clutch locks up and aggressively shuts off fuel flow to the
engine while decelerating. This fuel economy benefit may be perceived
as a light to medium braking sensation when removing your foot from
the accelerator pedal.
I find only one thing wrong with this: The Focus does not have a torque converter.
Other than that, a torque converter would have to lock up to provide engine braking (and thus a sensation of braking) and DFSO.
Undoubtedly the error about the torque converter is a result of copy/paste.

Yes, but the engine is not beint driven in reverse by the wheels.
The wheels are driving the engine instead of the engine driving the wheels.
