Update of drive-ability after software update on DCT:
My build date is January 23 2013.

Car has a much smoother start out with minimal grinding sounds. No longer has grindings in mid shifts. Acceleration is still as usual, sport shift gears still shifting at previous points. Overall, software update did very well at quelling the issues from previous software. Shifts are continuous and no hesitation. Does not shift roughly anymore. Parking lot start and stops are alot easier and have no grind sounds. Creep forward characteristics remain unchanged and operate as they previously did. Hill start operates as previously did.

Laughable. Just what you want in a new(er) car.

Its the first for Ford used a DCT. I agree ,a little more effort shouldve been used in perfecting it. But, nothing is ever perfect, and when you bought the new tech, it would never be perfect. As an early adopter, this is always a risk and you just merely accepted it when purchasing.

fYI this new technology that you speak of is going on 3rd year of production. I wish idiots around here would stop making excuses for Ford bad design. the proof is in the numbers ford ranks at the bottom of the list according to Consumer Reports. Ford sale have nose dived this past year. let's hear more of those excuses people.

hey listen here. no need to go on flaming. Im not making excuses for ford. That 25k? Well spent to me.
3rd year of production? Please show me some real numbers on the '13-'14MY Foci with problems in relation to the transmission. It seems as if the forum is only filled with people who have problems.

BTW, who reads consumer reports?

VW has been doing the Audi-adapted DSG thing for years and those faux-automatics are far from perfect - even in the newest model vehicles.

DCT/DSG is cool in theory but flawed in execution, no matter who does it at the high-volume, consumer level. The C.A.F.E. people are happy though

hey guys. my build date is Oct 2012. I got my clutch/seal pack replaced in Feb 2013. For the past month, i'm hearing grinding again. It's lite but it's there. Have they put out a newer version of the clutch pack yet? When they replaced mine I'm pretty sure they used the exact same parts.

Thanks

If and IF there is no fluid leakage, you may try the 13-09-04 TSB.

And so far the update has held true for me. The slight grind has gone away since yesterday and Ive yet to hear it again. Ive never had a clutch contamination issue so it may be different for you.

TSB update was performed for me under New Vehicle Warranty. If OOW, you may incur charges.
