2013 Ford Focus Titanium 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 6AM)
I have now put on 12,000 miles on my 2013 ford focus se with 6speed dct auto. It has been a great car. Don't be afraid of the transmission. It shifts very smooth is nice. If you drive consistently and don't step on the gas hard it very rarely gives a bad shift. If you step on the gas hard it can be slow to downshift or sometimes might stay in existing great instead of upshifting. The transmission is an automated manual and thats how it gets amazing gas mileage. I get 39/40 mpg real world driving when the weather is good and I drive about 80% highway 20% city. In low speed driving like a parking lot it is not as nice as a regular automatic but it is fine just be easy on the gas. T
Great value. Amazing style, very quiet interior, high quality feeling, great handling, lots of features, good price, amazing gas mileage.
I used to be a GM guy but FORD has stepped it up. It is almost like they are a new car company.
People who complain about the transmission are rough on the gas pedal and would be better getting a manual so it is up to the driver on which gear they are.
Even 6 speed tranny's that are not dual clutch transmission tranny's take getting used too. Remember 6 speeds are alot of gears so you get more shifting and sometimes it 'thinks' to much. With an old school 4 speed automatic it usually just stayed in the gear it was in. Not much shifting was required.
