I don't know why you would think age has anything to do with it. You've fallen into the trap of thinking the DCT is just fine and the problem is in user expectations. You're wrong: there's a lot of unit-to-unit variability in these things; just because yours works well doesn't mean all others do.

Or maybe you think one age group will be more tolerant of pronounced clutch chatter and transmission grinding? Or dealing with a clueless dealer network, or having periodic "transmission overheating-pull over" messages in normal driving? And the list goes on...
