One of the things that has bothered me since I started reading about all the owners having problems with their new Focuses, especially with the DCT, is not being able to find any reliable data about how many cars are and are not affected. Without that I can't tell how big a risk someone (possibly me) would be taking in buying a new one. Nor whether the risk is declining with successive model years.

This is probably the wrong thread for us to have this discussion, though, since it is about the owners who LOVE their Focus 100%. Maybe we should take it to one of the many other threads that exist for that. It gets depressing reading them, so I come here occasionally to try to balance the picture.
LOL - I have the same thought - and tried to get some to find that number. But when people are not happy, it's the sky falling effect.

Yes, this car has issues. I doubt it's the 20%, 5% - or (I love this one) MOST of these cars - but yes, I wish everyone could be as happy with their car.

I am still loving this car at one year old (in a week) and 17,000 miles.

I just wanted to say that you guys are awesome! I've been lurking around the Escape-City forums and people don't seem to talk nearly as much on there are they do here.

Well, this is ironic.

I too would like to see real world numbers on the DCT issue even though I don't have one. I like my car more all the time. Especially since the 93 tune I have yet to update to version 2. PratoN it's hard to believe you have that many miles on already. I just turned 10,000 a week or so ago and going on a year and a half of ownership.

LOL! I guess I'll be keeping you away from my car then! I was kind of happy they discontinued it because it is now a one year color.
