Why this transmission, Ford?

2012 Ford Focus SEL 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6AM)

Review

There's a lot to like about this car: cool styling, good fuel economy, comfortable, and handles well. My only gripe, and it's a biggy, is the "automated transmission." It is very disconcerting driving this car. If test-driving this car, make it a point to do a left or right turn from a dead stop. The car searches for a gear and lurches when it finds one. Not pleasant.

Favorite Features

My favorite features are the fuel economy and the convenience of a hatchback. It's also quite attractive for a little wagon.

Suggested Improvements

That darn transmission. Make sure you take an extended test-drive. Once you are on the highway, this thing is a dream. Try driving the fiesty automatic transmission in city traffic. Glad this is only a long-term rental.
