I just drove a 2014 SE on Oahu for five days with 11k miles and it lurched and grinded worse than my 2012 SEL. When I took the focus up the windy drive to Tantalus lookout though it reminded me why I fell in love with the focus. Handling!

I have owned a 2014 ST for the past year and almost 22k miles and I love it and i'm really happy I dumped the DCT though I took the biggest beating ever trading in my SEL.

When they did the clutch in my 2014HB the supplied rental was another 2014HB
Pretty much exact car other than interior
The rental had less KM than mine but was shuddering just as badly

I rented a 14' black se hatchback for my mom and drove it a bit. No issues or grinding noises out of the DCT but I did notice the feeling of hesitation when calling for power. Wouldn't bother me if I had of owned it though.

my 2012 acted the same way until about 21k miles when it started grinding. it didn't lurch as bad as the 2014 that I rented in Hawaii though
