toggle shifter on shift column
I was thinking of buying a focus so I drove one. The shudder you all describe didn't bother me that much. What bothered me, was that when I wanted to use the toggle switch to change gears manually, it was very slow in responding. It took about half a second or maybe more from the time I pushed the toggle switch until the gear changed. I can do that faster in my manual transmission car with my left foot operating a regular clutch. Is this normal for a dual clutch? Isn't the whole idea of two clutches to make the shifts very fast? Was I driving a lemon? Does any one else think this toggle switch is too slow?
