Turns out that the clutch was defective. My Ford dealer called the Ford service hotline and they confirmed that this is an identified problem on some Focuses. Replacing the clutch was the only solution. They got a new clutch kit from Ford and completed the repairs in a day.

Just got my Focus back today and the problem is resolved.
Do you know if TSB 11-12-13 was performed?

If it was, shaft seals would have been replaced.
