I have not one but two DCT equipped Focus cars, one nearing 150K miles. I also have a 2019 Jeep Cherokee with the infamous 9 speed auto and an Alfa Romeo turbo 2.0. To top it off, I have an MT82 equipped Coyote Mustang.

What messed up prize do I win?

This is what happens when you appoint someone as CEO that has no clue how a company should be run....

They are having some issues but gone in 10 years,I think not since they are still making a buttload of money and selling trucks almost as fact as they can make them.

This is primarily focus(ed} on two models and it still astounded me that people continued to buy the DCT with all those troubles early on and no real fix-it in sight.

All it takes is one model in enough numbers to do it.........you'd best look at that stock price again, close to a 5 year low. Astounded? Not in this new world of 'truth is not truth'..........some 40% now doesn't even know any longer what the word 'racism' means. Or that when you get a tax cut it means you get money back not pay in more.

In that world it gets so easy to rip silly people off I'm even thinking about doing it.

Transmission still came out of gear and took off by itself in parking lots. I had to sell it for a whopping 10k less than I paid as Ford engineers said everything is normal after driving the car (and dozens if not hundreds of others) around the block. A month later I bought a new honda insight. They said due to the focus' history they couldn't take it as trade in. This is my first new car. My grandfather worked for Ford his whole life. Shame on you Ford. Now Honda is taking care of me. You just lost a 60yr tradition. I used to hate honda and liked ford. Now it's reversed because you know you messed up and left a huge customer base stranded. Anyway I am sorry for those of you on the same boat. I hope you got a manual!!
As a big Ford fan myself I am also disappointed to see the DCT problems with the MK3 Focus. A European designed and styled Focus finally makes it's way to the US and the automatic transmission is junk... go figure. At 40k miles my DCT started to give me problems, like losing 2nd 4th 6th and reverse gears, so I decided to swap out the transmission for the MTX75 Manual Transmission. Everything runs great now!
