Ford will do nothing on the 2012-2013 model years.. just laugh all the way to the bank.

I sure do hope Ford rolls out a fix that can help all of their customer's DCT transmissions otherwise they will have a class-action lawsuit or Department of Transportation will investigate it and possible force Ford to issue a recall which won't bode well for the company if they want to make in-roads with the small car market.

My DCT work fine and I have well over 40,000 miles. It worked perfectly from day 1. I think the problem occurs where some part leaks, sticks, whatever in certain cars.

Not according to Ford, maybe in the past, but they are not calling this a problem on 2013 models, there are no TSBs for mine and it grinds, lunges and misses shifts constantly. It's frustrating to drive and I am just told "it's normal".

It did not grind the first 100 miles, funny, the day I drove it off the lot it was smooth and faultless.
