I may not work for Ford and have intimate knowledge of every single change they have ever made, but I don't claim to. You on the other hand do seem to claim to be all knowing when it comes to this car.
So far I've seen many new 2013 owners complaining about shift shudder, along with their 2012 compatriots.
That's just one such example mentioning the clunking/ shuddering gearbox in a pair of 2013 Focus models at low speed. That seems to indicate that the problems still aren't resolved in the units that don't work properly.
personal attacks? are you a super moderator? you're the one all rustled and subjective. I advise we just leave this "conversation" because it's not going anywhere constructive.
it's difficult to discern regular DCT characteristics with actual issues with all of the '13 people posting. MOST of that stuff is within break-in as well.
so far there is 0 video/audio evidence of accelerating with grinding issues on '13 foci as well as '13s having fluid leaks.
