Since the weather started climbing into the 90's the last couple of weeks here in Portland I've noticed something eerily consistent about the DCT, it does not like hot weather! The lag is terrible, especially when attempting to accelerate quickly from a rolling 5-10 MPH. I just about got creamed today trying to switch lanes as a truck five cars back switched lanes at the same time a lot quicker while my Focus hesitated for a couple seconds, sputtered, then took off like a rocket as the engine redlined. Then it stayed like that for a couple more seconds even after I took my foot off the pedal.

Freakin' scary!

Should bought the 5MT instead.
