What I Drive: 2013 Focus Titanium DCT Dilemma

Anyone trade their SEL or Titanium for a ST?

I am thinking of trading in my 2013 Titanium with the DCT for a ST. I am not a big fan of the DCT and its quirky nature and my dealer told me I would have to order a manual Titanium.

Has anyone done a similar trade? I only have 1800 miles on my car.

Yes...I only had it for 7 weeks and I am having issues with the DCT. I just do not like the tranny.

I'd say trade it in. You clearly don't like ur current car. Get rid of it.

I want to get one in Oxford White, but none of the dealers near me have any in stock, a few have some ST1 and ST2 on order, ST1 would be help my upside down, but a ST3 would probably be an expensive payment. Aside from the HID and the seats, I may be able to live with a ST1, I just wish my Titanium had a 6 speed MT in it.

Have you thought about waiting for SCT to finish the DCT tuning to see if it helps any , may make your car just what you want

I know nothing of SCT, do you have a link? It would make the difference, since it's the biggest caveat right now.

I'm pretty sure I'll be taking home an ISM ST2 monday night in part exchange for a 2012 SEL. I've got a DCT that works fine, but I wanted the manual gearbox, better seats, and more performance capabilities.

I wasn't upside down though as I owned the Focus I would be trading, but it does kind of suck about the depreciation.

The MMT6 is very nice.
