Never had any issues even when it was in stop and go traffic in 80-90 degree ambient weather last summer, don't have issues in rush hour traffic either, so again I say no to the torque converter.

I wouldn't have bought the Focus if it used a torque converter automatic.

The Cruze transmission features clutch to clutch shifting instead of bands and allows for select shifting but your right its not a dual clutch. Chevy is supposed to introduce a true 7 speed dual clutch next year. My neighbors have a Cruze and it spent a month at the dealer for transmission problems. They sounded like they had a Focus with the problems they've had with it.
