i feel liek the tranny in the focus is RETARTED !! i never want to down shift unless im like 60% or more on the throttle and it soo slow sometime that im half way to the floor and losing speed uphill cus it take 4 to 5 second sometimes to down shift .. it shift smooth it got good fluids in it and it low miles .. just hit 90k last night .. i fell like its lockign the TC as often as possible for MPG thats good but it sucks when i wanna go somewhere

Mine also seems slow to downshift at times but all things considered the wagon is supposed to be a family vehicle not a performance vehicle. Its bigger and heavier than the hatch so I deal with it.

Bought my wagon in 2000. 194000 miles later it still reacts that way. Btw, I also have an 07 wagon and the tranny is much more responsive.

You can change the way it shifts with a tune. Get hold of 1turbofocus aka Tom. He can get your shift together ! Pun intended.
