There was a very early clutch issue where the pressure plates worked loose from the flywheel. There was a TSB and most cars with the problem have been fixed. Newer cars don't have this problem.
The current internet firestorm is around the gearbox and difficult shifting. The problem is generally accepted to be in the shift linkage and not the gearbox itself. It's a rare complaint; my car doesn't do it. Ford has issued a TSB changing the gear oil to a thinner rating, but that doesn't fix the problem in all cases.
