And keep in mind that most people just get on here to hate on the car. You shouldn't think it is a representative sample.
I have a manual, so I can't speak to the DCT, but I have MyFordTouch, which is the other thing people hate on, and I love it. I love my car enough that we bought a second one just like it.
It is an $18k car that gets 40mpg, fits a lot of stuff, and looks sharp. It is not a magic car that will always be silent, perfect, and have no little hiccups. However, for the money, there is no better car.
