The jury's still out on MY 2013 Job 2 DCT! It's better after a couple PCM/TCM reprograms but still slips through 1st gear.

Having had a Sentra, test-driven a Corolla and riding in many Civics, I would recommend an SE hatchback with the 201A pkg. Lots of extra touches to a great car. If for no other reason, I would get the 201A pkg JUST FOR the 4-wheel discs. I will NEVER buy another car with rear drums ever again. The last two rear-drum vehicles I owned went through front brakes prematurely.
