Really don't have to post the same thing in multiple places, makes it hard to follow a particular problem/conversation. Two messages to Meagan in different threads can confuse things for example.

You haven't been on long enough to see this comment before, IMHO from what I've seen most of the multiple repairs are from not finding the cause the first time.

Despite many being solved by the std. repair, applying ONLY that to all misses some with other issues. Just for a couple examples, when you see ones that get clutch pack/seals PLUS a clutch lever or actuator - you know those found a cause that just throwing in a new clutch set wouldn't fix.

It's sad to see multiple identical repairs, doubt many are from a first repair gone wrong. Tunnel vision to try the same thing again, or the real cause not being obvious is my guess for most with multiple repair attempts.

2012 SE Sedan - just under 16K miles. No problems with DCT - got used to the differences from a "normal" auto tranny pretty quickly. I love this car and how it drives.
