I'm about an hour new to this forum and I joined only in hopes to find out what the heck is wrong with my transmission! I bought my 2012 Focus about a week ago and just clicked 1K miles. I love the car but I have all of the same problems as the rest of you guys. Car shudders (especially) at downhill stops...clunks into gear hard (intermittently), reverse is "jerky" feels like it skips third gear sometimes, and it's all getting worse. Dealer said it's normal and they're not that familiar with the new trans....also told me they've replaced a couple of Fiesta transmissions less than a thousand miles. I don't know if Ford is using the same trans there, but sounds scary. Feel kinda sick I dumped 21K ten days ago, and having problems.
