And more to the point this seems like a NA specific issue. People around the world aren't having the "issues" that we are having. You'll notice I said "issues", because a majority of the DCT complaints are just how the damn thing works.
The Falcon does not use a DCT but a 6MT or a 6 speed ZF automatic transmission as far as I can find. But the Focus uses the same 2.0 L i4 and dry dual clutch powershift transmission in Austrailia (and at least from the german built cars shipped to Austrailia the gearbox and engine are coming from North America per Unida767's panther black Focus Ti.) However it is true that only the North American consumer and media complain about the gearbox. The fickle press loved it until it was production spec and then lamented it for some strange reason.
