2013 Ford Focus Titanium 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 6AM)
I am very unhappy with the "new transmission" Ford has put in the new 2013 Focus. My car is 7 months old and has had 4 visits for the same issue. Last month it was in the shop for almost 2 weeks due to a leak of a seal and needing a new clutch. The transmission shifts inappropriatly and puts me at high risk for smashing into a car ahead of me. The answer given by the Ford employees is that I need to learn the car and how to drive it. Unacceptable answer!
Per the Ford mechanic, they receive 2-3 calls daily regarding this issue and have read many other complaints. Ford should do a recall and fix the problem before someone's life is taken.
