Plus, I saw lots of people complaining about the DCT and figured...."I'll switch my own gears thanks!". One of the main reasons Consumer Reports dissed the Focus is the tranny issue + My Ford Touch. I figure since I didn't' get either...it must be a "buy"
I have not lost the ability to drive a manual, I drove them for years prior, it's just that I bought this car with the intention that my wife will drive it too, she never drove a manual and I don't know if she could ever learn how to?

You are spot on with the DCT, it's the biggest caveat for me right now and it's not getting any better.

Why can't she learn? It just takes a little practice.

We took delivery of an identical car a little over a week ago, had to order it as none with those options were anywhere close. We went with 20% all around even though MO law is 35% on the fronts.

How do you know yours is a PZEZ motor?
Just wondered if ours was too.

My wife loves hers too.

Whoa! This was hard to find. I don't like really dark tint..this looked good to me. You can tell it is the PZEZ motor b/c 1) there isn't a Flex Fuel badge and 2) when you open the gas door, it isn't yellow around the ring of fuel fill port.

Congratulations on your new ride, Tigeo! Looks like you have a beauty on your hands. :) If you can tear yourself away from your new ride, you should spend some time getting to know the features on http://owner.ford.com. You can download your Owner's Manual, schedule appointments, and get coupons for service and products.

Enjoy your new Focus!

Crystal

You can also tell by the window sticker. It's listed under optional equipment.
