I'll do that.
I already got the car, need more time to check if shudder totally gone.
Seems more responsive now.

Well a yearly update was in the works. I had the clutches replaced a year ago and I've had zero problems with them but I've followed things I've read here. So by following these I've had a great experience with the DCT transmission.

Some good points.....ya, when stuck in traffic on an incline or decline.....the dct is not happy,
I try and keep on the brake and then surge ahead...repeat...especially uphill if I try and just slowly accelerate the car shakes and shudders/jerks.....I cant always not crawl in traffic because if i leave too much of a gap, other cars keep cutting in front.

The only thing I always struggle with is the roll back they have on a hill gotta be quick on the gas or you might roll back into another car.

Dct has hill assist...if you press brake hard, and release it should not roll back...or only slightly

same. Luckily i dont get stuck in traffic often so that's not to big a deal but my daily commute has a lot of hill driving and i have the same issue where if i get going to slow on a hill and then try to accelerate it shudders. I find that manually shifting so that i can keep it in a lower gear and there for keep the rpm's up seems to help when driving slow on hills.
