I agree with you 100% I think the real problem is the salesman at the Ford dealers are not telling people that these cars are not traditional automatic transmission but actually a automated MANUAL I researched the car before I bought so I was educating the salesman when I bought mine but can you imagine the disappointment of someone who never drove a stick and then buys a Focus not Knowing itís a automated MANUAL?

#573 of 825 2012 Ford focus transmission problems
Dec 27, 2012 (2:29 pm)
Iv had problems with my 2012 forcus and my wifes also. I took it to one ford dealer they installed these so called updates and it was good for a while then went back to shit shifting. So I called another ford by me and they were stright forword. saying they have problems with the clutch packs going bad inside the trans and to fix that it needs to be rebuilt. I have warrenties on both and it wont cost a thing. Just letting everyone no thats what the problem seems to be. Plus the transmission are made in china now so that could also be a mistake.

I Have taken it to different dealers they tell me nothing is wrong, so how do you get them to fix something they say has No problems, of course they arent driving it when it almost stalls out or loses power etc.

jg darling. I figure this transmission will get fixed, Or ford will file for chapter 7. They put to much time and money in it. errr I mean the consumer did.
It may be too late for ford.
replace the dct with a conventional auto and Walllla what tranny problems.
But they doubled down with it for the 13 models.Thats what I call top notch management.
I expect to see a class action suit real soon.
Ford did not take a bail out. We gave them it $ with this driveline. We as in consumers.
ford had better get on it real fast. Or perish.

That is exactly right bobananda! I purchased this car and specifically asked if it was a standard and they told me no. I told them I didn't want a standard transmission. I have had them before as well and I have to tell you. I don't think knowing how to drive one has anything to do with it. This is an awful transmission and a terrible car and Ford should be made to do something!
