I wold like to jump on this thread, I am in Northern NJ, as you all know we got hit by Sandy here, so I never had a chance to go to dealer. I will go soon as soon all will calm down here. It's ease to find gold than gas over here right now.
I will tell that,:; as colder day we getting now, less shuddering and rattling noise is not loud as it usually. I can bet that its have something to do with temperature of the DCT, maybe metal expansion and/or contraction. I was browsing on all Getrag sites couldn't find any info. I was thinking adding some kind of conditioner or cooler thru the vent hose with surenge, cause it all seems not 100%normal but it drives better when cold out.
I know couple of guys experience the same(improvement in cold days), but anybody got it thru? Got some answers on it? DCT is good idea but still with a lot of bugs in it.
Thx Steven
