I posted on another thread, but I'll add our experience here again...
We had the same DCT problems, so bad my wife went to trade it on another Focus (I talked her out of that one). Finally, the service manager at Zumbrota Ford in MN asked for one more shot at the DCT. After spending two days going through the Ford warranty contortions, he pulled the trans, found the seals had leaked and the dry clutches were full of fluid. Replaced the clutches, seals and this is now the car we wanted all allong. Better shifting than my VW, very few other issues. So, time will tell with this rebuild. If it holds we'll keep the car, if not...

I now have a 2014 Mazda 6. Hopefully the relationship with this car goes a lot better.
One thing I do have to say though, I like the Ford's Sync better than what Mazda has in thier infotainment system.

Every day I wish I hadn't bought this car.
And if I had not bought the extended warranty, I'd owe a lot less on this piece of junk, and I'd be that much closer to being able to trade it in on something else.... ANYTHING ELSE.

|BlueFocusSE5||Then why in the world did you toss money at an extended warranty?|

From what I read they had to re-arrange things spacewise to get the larger motor and headers in the body design.

I was originally going to lease a 2014 Mazda 3, but the lease was just ridiculous. I ended up getting into an Infinti Q50 for about the same money as the Mazda. The InTune system is brand new and glitchy, but not as bad as MFT ever was at the beginning. Unlike the MFT, Infiniti built in a reboot function that's simple to use.
The transmission on the Q50 actually works! :)

Congratulations, what did you get?
