Help!! 2013 focus. Need your input.

Guys and Gals,

I'm in the market to buy a 2013 Focus 5 door (Titanium) with DCT. I joined this forum because while doing my research, I discovered several articles, reviews and long term tests which have brought to light the issues with the DCT and also the Sony MYtouch system. Car and Driver, Road and Track, Motor Trend and Consumer Reports have all found fault with the tranny and Consumer Reports gave it their lowest rating of "worse." Obviously this concerns me a lot because I'd like to avoid any new car purchase nightmares.

I have my financing already approved and I've picked out the exact car from dealer stock. I was planning on taking delivery early this week, but now I'm reluctant to do so until I get some feedback from Focus owners such as yourself. If you have a 2012/2013 Focus with DCT, please share with me your experience with your car. Also, after having bought the car, did any of you regret your decision or trade it for something else?

Please give me your honest feedback. Thanks everybody.
