And the dealer I called fell into the latter (after I went to another dealer who gave me the mantra).

I'm happy with my DCT but I'm willing to see what this new update does for the transmission (in terms of smoothness and less hesitation). Hopefully, I'll have some noticeable difference. Did anyone else get an update? If so, how'd it work out for you. I'll let you know my thoughts after a good drive on Monday.
Looking forward to your comments on how this update improved your drive. My focus was built in May and is eligible for this update as well. The DCT works great and only has a very slight issue with strange vibrations occasionally. I have 7000 miles and slight vibrations have never caused me to worry enough to complain about it.
After hearing about the TSB update for this I am looking into getting this done even if to just improve shifting response and also to take care of any slight vibrations that occur.
Please let us know how it works out and if you recommend this update for others.

Thanks!
