Sorry to hear of your frustration....sounds like your dealer isn't very supportive...my DCT is just fine...have you had the latest TBS done to it yet....
TSB 13-04-05 2011 2013 Fiesta, 2012 2013 Focus Intermittent Transmission Clutch Shudder DPS6
Automatic Transmission
Some 2011 2013 Fiesta and 2012 2013 Focus vehicles equipped with a DPS6 automatic transmission may exhibit an intermittent transmission clutch shudder on light acceleration from a stop. Follow the Service Procedure steps in this TSB to correct the concern by reprogramming the powertrain control module (PCM)/\transmission control module (TCM) module to the latest calibration using IDS release 84.01 or higher
BCM 5614 2012 2013 Focus Air Conditioning (AC) Inoperative With Seized Compressor
Some 2012 2013 Focus vehicles equipped with a 2.0L GDI engine, built on or before 11/21/2012 may exhibit a lack of air conditioning due to a seized A/C compressor. This typically occurs after the vehicle has sat for an extended period of time in high ambient temperatures without an engine start. A new A/C compressor BV6N-19D629-BF (Engineering Level), service part number BV6Z-19703-B has been released for service to address this concern
BCM 5568 2011 2013 Fiesta, 2012 2013 Focus Clutch Shudder On Acceleration From A Stop
Some 2011 2013 Fiesta, 2012 2013 Focus vehicles equipped with a DPS6 automatic transmission may exhibit a clutch shudder on acceleration from a stop with no evidence of a transmission fluid or engine oil leak in the clutch housing area. Using IDS, perform the clutch adaptive learning routine before replacement of any transmission components. Select Toolbox, Powertrain, Transmission, TCM Adaptive Learning, Clutch and Shift Drum routines. When complete, perform the Drive Cycle procedure. Refer to Workshop Manual, Section 307-11 Focus or 307-01(Fiesta). Ensure PCM calibration is the latest level. If necessary, refer to any applicable TSB and/ or service labor time standard
