Posted via FF Mobile Ugh thank go they got rid of the 4spd slush box that plagued the focus for over ten years. I know some people had no problem with them, but earlier versions would est themselves, it sucks up tons of power, shifts a slow at times...I really dislike the automatic in my car. Its really not that great, let alone very bullet proof. So glad they threw a dct in the new focus, they set the bar for other Manufactuers regardless of the negative comments from the media about Powershift. Everyone is throwing in dct options into their economy cars now. Hyundais got em, Dodge got em...the more the merrier. DCT has proven to not only provide better fuel economy then a manual trans or traditional auto, but also potentially better performance then both.
