I asked the service advisor why the clutch needed to be replaced... he called the tech over who performed all the work. The clutch assembly was LEAKING fluid. So they had to fix the leak and replace the clutch! He said that's why I had the shudder. I also confirmed that the transmission has the latest and greatest update.

They also fixed the steering wander issue... I LOVE MY CAR NOW. It drives amazing and it's not even past the 'learning' period.

I filled up at the gas station and got 46 MPG from the gas station to my house... all city driving. Amazing. I know that number will not stay but it shows that my gas mileage improved after the clutch replacement/DCT update.

I am so happy.
