What I can say is that I called Warnock Ford after I switched cars, and they said that they had told Enterprise that the car just needed to be driven more. Although it seems to me that the readout I got about transmission failure meant that in this case, the problem was more serious than just a few bugs to be worked out.

I wonder whether, if a Focus needs to learn the driving style of one driver, then it is a bad car to add to a rental car fleet, since it's going to have multiple drivers.

I also wonder whether, given the number of reports of transmission problems I've seen online with this car, there is a recall or service advisory in the works?
