It might also be helpful to know, for those of you with 50-100k+, have any of you had any mechanical issues? DCT issues?

It is funny you bring that up. I was wondering when that will need replacing. It is not uncommon in a stick shift car to do the clutch. I wonder when I will need to do this one ... and is it covered under ESP bumper to bumper?

My DCT has worked great from day one. I had the front end noise but that was fixed.

My car has been grinding since ~20K miles, but here at 59k it still works... it just grinds and jerks. That said, it is covered under the ESP... IF you can convince them to fix it, that is.

EDIT: DCT and its clutch are covered under all ESPs while the MT clutch is 12 months/12k miles AFAIK

I'll turn 4000 miles this afternoon and I've had it a little over a month. I'm glad I sprung for GAP insurance.

That is a good question, from here: http://www.ford.com/resources/ford/g...12Warranty.pdf

Quote:
Extended warranty coverage periods are available for certain
vehicle parts and conditions. Specifically,
<...>
Transmission: all internal parts, clutch cover, seals and gaskets, torque
converter, transfer case (including all internal parts), transmission case,
transmission mounts;
However, this is also stated:
Quote:
Maintenance/Wear
The New Vehicle Limited Warranty does not cover: (1) parts and labor
needed to maintain the vehicle; and (2) the replacement of parts due to
normal wear and tear. You, as the owner, are responsible for these items.
See your Scheduled Maintenance Guide. Some examples of maintenance
and normal wear are:
oil changes
oils, lubricants, other fluids
oil/air filters
tire rotation/inflation
cleaning/polishing
clutch linings
I would think for the 5MT folks, a clutch is considered a maintenance item (as it is susceptible to abuse) but for the DCT the clutches would be covered by any warranty as the transmission is entirely controlled by a computer and not susceptible to abuse.

Perhaps one of the Ford reps can chime in and provided some qualitative advice for once?
