I got my focus in Sept 2012 along with six others for our company. Every single one of the cars react very badly at low speeds such as in stop/start traffic and up driveways and small hills etc. The cars shudder constantly and feel like they are going to conk out which doesn't exactly instill confidence in any of us. My car has also had several occasions where the engine had malfunctioned and the car has needed to be towed to the closest Ford dealer for repairs. These have been competed quickly in the dealers defense but there has never really been a discussion to the causes after or a chat about the jittery transmission. luckily this has all been paid for by my company as I can honestly say that had this been my own car purchased by myself I would have long since thrown the keys back at the dealer and asked for my money back.
One way I have found of avoiding the jumpy nature of the car in low gear is to drive the car in tiptronic. It runs a lot another but obviously defeats the purpose of having an automatic vehicle.
Is there any way I can get this issue fixed? I recently had the transmission replaced due to it malfunctioning and shitting down the entire engine in the middle of auckland city at peak traffic but the issue still remains. Any advice would be really appreciated.

Just read that your transmission is a bit jerky. Has your dealer provided a diagnosis? Send over the current odometer reading, your preferred dealer, and any additional symptoms; I'll look into this.

I recommend heading to your dealer to have this diagnosed. Once you have an appointment set up, please let me know.
The PowerShift 6 Speed Transmission is designed to provide the feel and efficiency of a manual transmission with the easy driving of an automatic. The PowerShift transmission automatically engages the next gear in anticipation of the shift, providing seamless shifting. It also has neutral idling, which disengages the transmission when sitting at idle, and helps to maximize fuel efficiency.
Because the PowerShift 6 Speed Transmission operates similarly to a manual transmission, you may notice some characteristics that provide a unique driving experience from the automatic transmission you may be used to:

|FFhb13||I just bought a 2013 focus hb, titanium.... I did read about the transmission problems..I didn't notice it in any of the 2013 or 2014 foci I test drove....the one I bought had 30,000km, it's a little bit jerky with some vibes when you first take off, then it seems fine...I bought an extra 6 years/160,000km warranty that is almost bumper to bumper with some minor exceptions just in case.|

Is This the End?
My 2012 keeps having serious issues... IT KEEPS DYING.. according to Ford my fuel pump keeps sucking my gas tank into itself and the FUEL SYSTEM need replacing($2300). It Died in front of an oncoming bus.
Today I replaced the lower control arm on the driver side ($245).. a major suspension issue.
Tonight on my drive home it died at a light and when I pulled up to the house leaving a coaster sized oil spot on the ground beneath it... I popped the hood and it looked like a crime scene.. oil everywhere!
I have been in contact with FORD and they basically said I'm SOL... had I been under 5yr/60,000mi (It's 2yrs 69,xxxmi) they would have taken care of it... but I'm SOL.
