You can probably ask for a partial refund...

Not necessarily as the 14M01 warranty extension only covers the input shaft seal and clutch. The transmission would be covered by your extended warranty.

Actually, the biggest problem may be getting Ford to acknowledge that you need a new clutch and seals. it will depend on how strict the latest TSB is in regard to the "tolerance" that is acceptable to Ford. Not everybody is going to automatically get a new clutch and seals.

Well this is great news and I have to give a shout out to the OP for providing this update and for the videos and other input he provides -- just bumped his reputation.

I've had a few shudder events of little consequence but have known that I may need to replace the clutch at some point so knowing that they are standing behind this is a great comfort. It may have been tempting to get the clutch replaced earlier but since mine has been pretty good it made sense to wait for improved hardware/software and it looks like they are still making improvements with it now at rev F.

I'm at 33K miles now and if I can manage to 50K or so then get a new clutch/seals I would hope that would pretty much put to bed the concern about the dual clutch.

Now what will they do about the MFT for those that have it...

Depends on when you were last flashed. The reflash I got that smooths out the shifts is still the current reflash. Nothing else has come out.

Note the date of June 5, 2013 in the dealer letter.

For cars built before that date, it would seem to indicate that the shaft seals have a reasonable chance of developing a leak.

Also note that this program does will not apply to cars built after that date (which means most 2014 MY Focuses).

This is great news. That warranty will cover the life of my loan now. Really happy Ford stepped up on this.

So, basically Ford is telling the customers that:

Transmissions built after 6/6/2013 use new parts and they should be (largely) problem free.

If this is really the case, then we should congratulate Ford for getting the job done. To judge if this is really the case, I think we need to poll 2014 owners and those who recently received oil leak treatments.

If you are sure that you have the new parts (inner shaft seals and clutch packs), please report your experience.
