There have been a couple of threads with MTX75 owners complaining about no power when taking off from a stop. These seemed to be random occurrences, but it looks like Ford may have found a solution.

The wording is strange there... How often do you launch a manual transmission vehicle from a stop without the accelerator pedal? It's not like the Focus has gobs of low-end torque and stump-puller gears.
