So what's the deal with your snarky 'Focus drivers are unsophisticates in the heady world of European-style transmissions' comment?
Didn't mean to sound snarky. Just weary of the inference that the user is the problem rather than the DCT. It's a flawed device released with bad (and still not right) software - that's the reason there are an abnormal number of complaints. Ford may make this thing right - we'll see.
