slybarman Unfortunately, you may have to wait until summer before you know if the repair really made the difference. The difference between hot and cold weather performance is quite striking.

2whluge 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...

Me too. Liked the car a lot, transmission has re-enforced my opion of Ford quality though. My last one was a Fairmont, what a POS that was! Swore I'd never own another Ford. Then the 2013 Focus got rave reviews, they didn't take bailout money, it's been few decades....
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.

VOLDAR Didn't have problems with my DCT but I want to say that I can understand how annoying this should be.

Indeed. The warranty on my car has been worthless. It has numerous problems that Ford refuses to fix. Visits to numerous dealerships have done nothing but waste my time and damage my car. What good is a warranty that the manufacturer won't honor? What good are dealership service departments that are incapable of fixing anything?

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.

The transmission on the Q50 actually works! :)
too bad they were greedy on the lease, I think there is a 2.5 175hp version of the 2014 mazda-3 with 38+mpg highway.
From what I read they had to re-arrange things spacewise to get the larger motor and headers in the body design.

enjoy, I know I sure AM. So nice to be able to drive somewhere not worrying/anticipating the next shudder or clatter.
