I have heard and experienced several stories about the issues with the DCT but I want to know if its going to blow up in some catastrophic highway incident? Or is this thing going to last forever and just feel and act horrible?

Just curious?
I had one tranny failure that occured while engaging in a busy intersection back in March 2012. That was the only tranny failure I had and the only way I had to move the damn thing out of the way was to switch from N to D to limp out of the way. Got back home, parked the car and brought it in at the shop the next morning.

Tranny worked fine going to the shop, dealer told me the car produced an error code, they reflashed the DCT software. Beside the bad DCT behavior, no other tranny errors occured since then.
