Then again he couldn't have been older than 19 years old...I doubt a guy with 3, or less, years of driving experience under his belt would know what a slipping clutch felt like.
I'm 21, so not much more experienced than he, but after 3 of my years being a 6spd manual, I definitely know what a slipping clutch feels like, considering I learned to drive a manual with that 6spd, lol.

But definitely keep us updating with what happens, guys. I have to bring my car in soon for the rain-sensing wipers, I suppose, since Crystal escalated that issue to my CSM and he in turn to my dealer. They'll probably tell me what they told me a year ago, that the wipers seem to work as they should, even though I don't think 30+ seconds of nothing happening when in pouring rain counts as working as they should. I'll mention the TSB for the DCT to them while I'm at it.
