In this video... they make a comment about the 6 speed auto shaking and stuttering... but they also mention that the trans. works very well for them...

Realize too that these 6 speed autos are only 1 year old... there is bound to be problems with the new technology... this is the primary reason i generally DO NOT buy the first model year of any car... I would love a new Fiesta or Focus 5 door hatch and although I am looking into getting one of these newer models... a good recommendation would be for some people to wait a few years before purchasing the new model car. I bought my 07 in 08 and passed up the 08 because it was the first model and did not come with a handling package. In a few years the new Gen Foci will be more refined with less problems and PROBABLY get even better MPG. I know its a hard draw not to get the new model but being an early adopter doesn't always pay off...
