I hate it when dealers try to BS customers. I would never walk through their door again and tell anyone that would listen about how they lie.

He has a 2011 not 12.

Hi Jim in Mich,

The post you are referring to was from May, and as serathe said, that was a 2011. You were correct in your description of PowerShift though.

I thought about asking this in general but i figured i would start here. Is anyone else experiencing problems? I know it's a dry clutch but i wanted to hear other peoples experience.
My 2012 SEL still has shifting problems after 15K miles and one software update. I had another Ford, the 2003 Mazda 6 that also had terrrible shifting. I wonder if the Focus has another JATCO transmission accompanied similar terrible programming?
