If it were software alone then why is my car fine -- no problems?

I'm not saying software isn't playing a role, but if you and I are running the same software then why should we have a different experience?

It seems to me that leaky seals are the root cause of most of the transmission (DCT) issues and that, perhaps, the software doesn't handle the unexpected conditions well. If leaky seals have hosed up the clutches they may slip at times the software is expecting no slippage.

So, if, like me, the clutches are fine then the software is fine...
