Yes, I am definitely pumped. My Focus is best car I have ever owned by a quarter mile. I have the Sport Suspension and the Sport Shift DCT. I knew that the DCT is managed with software and that the hesitation was probably related to fuel economy settings. In theory, one can program the DCT to shift any way they want it to. Since it has fuzzy logic it will learn how you drive and shift accordingly. In Sport mode the DCT tries to maintain current speed (foot off the gas pedal) so going down a hill it will downshift as necessary to control speed. Great feature! For the first few hundred miles I used the manual up-down shift a lot. But I hardly touch it now,
