Does no one proofread the Owners guide? - 2013 Ford Focus

Quote:
PowerShift Fuel Efficient Transmission
Your vehicle has been designed to improve fuel economy by reducing
fuel usage while coasting or decelerating. When you take your foot off
the accelerator pedal and the vehicle begins to slow down, the torque
converter clutch locks up and aggressively shuts off fuel flow to the
engine while decelerating. This fuel economy benefit may be perceived
as a light to medium braking sensation when removing your foot from
the accelerator pedal
From the 2013 Ford Focus owner's guide first printing.

What's wrong with this, oh let me count the ways:

1. The PowerShift DCT does not have a torque converter and therefore has no torque converter clutch.

2. The torque converter has nothing to do with the fuel injectors being shut off during ADFSO (Aggressive Deceleration Fuel Shutoff).

3. The car slows down due to the engine slowing the wheels, not the brakes.
