Take the car to your dealer, as Natasha recommended. Talk to the service department head for driving tips while your car is being evaluated by a mechanic. Try my tip as well. You'll be surprised how easy it is to make the car shift with the gas pedal.
I 100% agree. I am use to diving a stick. ( I race a Mustang) Now I learned how to drive a dual clutch. It is different than an automatic and different than a stick. I think people have to learn to drive the Focus. Ford should offer classes on it as well as classes on the MyFordTouch. From what I read in Automotive News, the classes for MyFordTouch are coming .. I think classes for dual clutch cars should be next.
