Thanks, unfocused1. It's just trepidation on my part, waiting for the "other shoe to drop." In nearly all other respects, the DCT has performed well. I knew going in that the eco-minded transmission would behave in a much more "fly-by-wire" fashion than a conventional auto. I just do now what I did when I rented an automatic Fiat 500 a couple of years ago: flip it to "Sport" when it feels too boggy and gutless for my driving mood.

Now if someone would just hack into the steering wheel controls for the cruise control and Sync voice-activation so we can enjoy proper paddle-shifters...
