Essentially what I have been saying over and over is this:
Clearly the DCT is capable of working well (because lots of folks tell us this).
If yours isn't working well, the dealer should fix it.

I have stated many times that the DCT issues have been greatly exacerbated by poor dealer service.

Called BS?

Clearly some DCTs work well and some have issues.

For those that do have issues, in some cases the dealer resolves the problem and in some cases the dealer dismisses it as "normal".

This is hardly a secret.

What exactly are the issues with the DCTs that are currently rolling off of the assembly line?

In this regard, how exactly should the DCT be any different than a conventional manual transmission?
I am Kabigon and I approve this message.
