the problem with documenting DCT issues is the apparent difficulty in getting local dealerships to actually acknowledge specific issues on a consistent basis

the only source for documented "problems" with the dct would be to survey dealerships...in many cases it at least appears that owners are having difficulty getting ford and the dealers to acknowledge that problem exists

from my own personal experience, transmission problems are very real but inconsistent and sporadic...the one time i had a complete transmission slip where i lost power to the drivetrain i took it to the dealer and they couldn't detect any problems or codes

it seems as if in most cases customers have had to do some real arm-twisting to get any significant repairs made...and even then it appears major replacement of parts have not proven to be a long-term fix
