Mine does the same thing. Ford mentions the concept of "microslip" in the DCT which I interpret as allowing the clutch to slip slightly make the experience a bit smoother. In some conditions, mine will even exhibit this behavior if gas is given suddenly when cruising, but not enough so as to cause a downshift.

Let's hope this is normal. Maybe the Ford rep could comment. Cory?
