"Most buyers of the Focus buy it for the combination of fuel economy and handling."

Agreed, which is why I don't regret my purchase. I'm just suggesting that if they went with the Fusion's 6-speed, for example, they may have been able to get comparable fuel economy and eliminated the biggest weakness of the car. I'm just not seeing conclusive evidence of a 10-15% economy benefit of the DCT.
