Why are so many people bashing FordNoMore? It sounds like a very reasonable complaint about a problem that Ford is not being responsible in dealing with.
I was only looking for a manual transmission. I wouldn't have considered the Focus, after my research earlier this year, if I wanted an automatic.
I understand that not everyone with a DCT has these problems. In fact it's probably a very small group. But the problems are big and it's not fair to pay a company a lot of money to get something that works poorly and may even be (or at least feel) unsafe.
My opinion is that Ford is not taking responsibility because of the significant costs to address this problem and, bottom line, because thus far they can get away with not taking responsibility. I love my Focus 5 speed so far, but this whole issue in dealing with the DCT is a major spot on Ford's reputation.
