Honestly though, these responses don't help. I expect it's true that some of the DCT complaints were because it behaves "differently", but for most it was resolved only when Ford decided to fix it with a TSB.
As to the oil life monitor, I'd bet if you polled owners a good majority would like to have the option of seeing how things were going before being surprised by the "change oil soon" light.
Thank you for the feedback, though I am sorry you feel my responses were unhelpful. If you would like to submit your request for the oil life percent to Ford engineers, you can do so at FordSocial
Let me know if you decide to go with the Focus!
