Mine is a April build I believe, 2011, and I should have every single issue and more so.

Hell, every time I went to my dealer just to get ST/Fusion info they assumed I came in for warranty work and they were pleased when I said nope, don't need it.

Even my dad would ask if I had gone and done the TSBs on the DCT and is happily say no need, it works fine and he would drive it and agree.

Every option except 18s with handling pack.

First model year cars always drop like bricks. First year cars that are fully loaded don't fare we at all.

This isn't some new phenomenon. Please look at depreciation on higher end cars after a year and bask in the ridiculous savings you can have if you hold off. I saved 6 grand on mine by getting a used example with 8500km. Hell, given that mine was used and adapted to another drivers behaviors should've annoyed me but the computers adjusted quick and kept things fine.

My only complaint was low speed jitter which when you look at all dcts stopped being a complaint.
