I drive the same car as you, I have as well as many other FANATICS have expirienced the shutter on the DCT, but this isn't some kind of moon landing conspiracy ford is covering up, there is an update for it at the dealership to take care of any backwards roll, shuttering, and stiff shifting that may happen. None of this is serious enough to cause some kind of catastrophic accident. If you were having power steering issues and the light was on, you shouldn't have been driving the car anyway, that is just reckless on your behalf. For you to come on here and start calling us "followers" and "idiots" is just plain ignorant. In my opinion if you were having all of these issues and all the sensor lights being lit like a damn Christmas tree I would have had the dealership tow it to their facility and left it until it was safe, you or your "110 lb wife" getting behind the wheel of a vehicle you thought was unsafe is just dumb on your part. This is FOCUS FANATICS not a website run by Ford, if you want to bitch and complain about it take it to Ford themselves, don't turn it into a 100+ page hate manifesto toward us "Fanatics" because honestly most of us will tell you exactly what I just said in the above comments, your complaining to the wrong people and embarrassing yourself
