Hi mutiger93gt,

I would definitely advise that you take your vehicle in to the dealership so they can take a look. Additionally, I want to escalate your case to your region's customer service manager. All I need to get started is a PM from you with your VIN, dealer, mileage, daytime phone number, and full name; I'll do the rest!

Some people complain of shuddering and get an entire transmission and clutch swapped. Others have weird noises and jerkiness and the dealers brush it off as a characteristic of the car. All I can really say is take it in and I wish you the best of luck.
Thanks for offering up this suggestion, PratoN.

Have a great day, everyone,

Should I take my car in for the DCT?

Well I have put about 12k miles on my car. It has a build date of around 9-11-11. I don't really have any major issues, aside from low speed shifts while turning sounding like a box of rocks in my transmission. I am just wondering if its worth the time to take in and have it looked at?

I mean other than the sound, the transmission seems fine. I mean, if its just the sound the transmission makes to shift then fine, but if its clutches slipping, then we have problems?

Probably already been covered but wanted to take a double check.
