If you know the VIN number of the car, go to etis.ford.com and enter it in the "vehicle" section. This will show you how the car is equipped and what "Field Service Actions" are outstanding. In particular, look for FSA 12b37: this was the major reprogramming of the DCT software.
My personal advice is to look elsewhere. The Focus is a terrific car but until the DCT issues are completely resolved and the dealer network begins to be able to deal with it, IMHO it's too big a risk.

But I see your point. The wife is already looking at other cars.
