That is completely B.S. When does any automatic (DCT, or otherwise) stall under hard braking? It's dangerous. You need to be able to stop fast, and then get the hell out of the way.

To add more proof: I had to deal with some putz who had a bit of unwarranted road rage the other day. He decided he would pull in front of me, and then as we were traveling about 25-30 mph, slam on his brakes to force me to slam on mine. I missed his rear bumper by about a half an inch the third time he did it, and at no point did my car exhibit any signs of stalling.

Luckily the oncoming lane cleared and I was able to fly around the putz, but you get the picture.
