I think with the variety of issues after the update it has to be the driver. My car is in the shop getting the update. I will have to provide my feed back tonight.
I usually drive pretty light footed to keep my mpg where its at but when I slow down and make a turn into a parking lot, why does it shudder and feel like im in 4th gear on a manual . So I press the gas a little more before it realizes it needs to downshift and it puts it in 3rd. 3rd?? Really?

Maybe I should be driving in S mode a little more.

The last update to the DCT was just fine and I did not notice a need to wait for the tranny to adjust to my driving. It seemed like it was always ready at any speed to kick down and would hold the gears longer if you wanted to pull away from a stop but now to do the same thing you have to literally keep the pedal FLOORED.

Looking forward to the next DCT PCM Update.
