I've had no breaking in period, bad clutches or any need to reset my transmission, yet I have no problems. Shifting is smooth, no shuttering, no hesitations, and no grinding.
I actually like my Focus far more than my previous car, an Acura RSX.
How many miles are on your car?
Otherwise, I agree - the 2012 Focus is a winner, even with the DCT nitpicks. As the DCT improves, hopefully 2012 owners experiencing issues won't be left to the curb. Someone mentioned the 2013 Focus having a different DCT built that alleviated some of the 2012's problems... if that person is correct, then there could be an issue going on...
