I just took my 2012 SE 5-speed for its first long road trip. My 10 day vacation took me 1000 miles of which 80% was bi-way and 20% interstate in Northern California...from sea level to 6,600 ft. elevation and back. The starting overall mileage was 4,400 and ended at 5,400 miles, the focus and the 5-speed performed flawlessly in 90 heat with the AC on the whole time. I averaged 35.5 mpg (according to the computer)...using premium gas. I have read on this forum that the AC reduces engine performance in the DCT...no such issues with my 5-speed.
ps. My wife was "impressed" at how well this vehicle goes around corners.
