They have to fix it, or the competition will.

That's nice, but one is inclined to ask "when" since "we're going to fix it" could mean anything from actually fixing its software issues to waiting for the next generation MFT to do anything useful and leave the current hardware/software to rot.

EDIT: I'd also like to know what his definition of "fixed" is. After all, the performance upgrade was supposed to fix everything and look how that worked out...

I'd love Ford to say "Ford vows to fix DCT", since that affects more people and - if the grindy blender noise is a harbinger then that really should have precedence. Especially when Ford has direct control over the DCT, and has to hope Microsoft will get off its hind...

Microsoft slopped MFT together. They won't hand out the source code (in theory)... Ford is better off ditching Microsoft and finding a reputable company to create a better MFT with. Microsoft, whenever it partners with someone, has ALWAYS been half-baked in its approach. Even IBM, on multiple occasions... And I'm amazed the Kinect was as well-designed as it was...

It's difficult to fix Microsoft garbage.
When they decide to quit depending on that overrated company then their technology will improve.

Am I the only one who thinks the Performance Upgrade..was actually an improvement? I see people here hating on it, and others from other sites/forums. It works much better than before...a lot less buggy for me.
