|HaloNHorns2002||I've had my '14 SE with the DCT for a little less than a month, I'm at a little over 1000 miles, y'all are starting to scare me! I don't hear any noises, but I do notice that it's exceptionally jerky at low speeds, I drive a 5-speed '99 Miata in the summer with a bad second gear synchro and it's smoother than this at low speeds...|

|mishka||sounds like a good theory. im very interested in the results you get. maybe those will help me too especially since i'm on sportlines.|

My car makes a low-pitched bad bearing drone/noise that's worse while coasting, but I think it does it all the time. (check out the rear camber tire wear thread)
My rear tires were cupped/scalloped on the inside and I'm pretty sure it was due to a combination of toe-in in the rear with the -2.2* of camber these cars can have. I can't say for sure, but I'm buying adjustable rear camber arms and I can let you know if it's related to the tires/alignment come spring.

...to me it seems like a bad bearing somewhere if it only does it while coasting. Maybe the application of the throlle hides it because the bearing is moving in conjunction with either the crankshaft/trans/some output shaft somewhere, then once I coast it goes into "freespin" and buzzes like a bee.
I can't convince the dealer to check my CV joints either, although I'm not sure thats the issue.

The best way I can describe it, is a constant buzz at highway speeds WHILE COASTING ONLY. The dealer even thought it was something rubbing in the engine compartment (packaging from the factory, loose wires, etc) but didn't find anything. What's really odd is that it does it at high RPMs, too.
For example, lets say I'm merging onto the highway. In 3/4 gear it will quickly buzz/grind as the RPMs creep up right before/just after an upshift, then it goes away. BUT, once I get up to about 55-65 mph, it comes back and it's constant, ONLY when coasting (no throttle applied). So if I get to a portion of the highway with a long downhill stretch, I'm basically buzzing my head off the whole way down the hill (and people hear it when I'm on my bluetooth with them and it drives them nuts).
Thanks all for the input, I will try to get fancy with the iPhone this weekend and get a clip.

Ghia, I think I am a very patient person most scout snipers are. Getrag(sp) is droping the DCT and look how many Minis they screwed up .You think Ford would have done their homework.
I'm just thinkin' that that my TI would be a lot sweeter with a six speed.
So, I was hoping the Golf would come out with a 6 spd, but it's not. The six spd Fiesta ST 197HP looks a little on the fast and furious to me .Scary.
I have had this piece of junk for 9 months and just waiting for it to implode. I have 4600 on it. I never get a TSB on it ,but some guys say they got them and on the Tranny. I'm selling it next ear with an extended warranty and going back to German or Japanese.
Hang in there and Merry Christmas

|mishka||i guesss i still hear it grind a bit lowly once in awhile but it doesnt seem like theres anything wrong... i think maybe it just sensitive to temp change and takes awhile to adjust? dunno|

I went through the whole clattering, clunking crappy DCT tranny noises/shuddering phase before replacing the clutch pack, but now that has gone away with the new clutches.
The car has already been to the dealer a few times, before and after the clutch replacement, and, despite the service manager riding in the car with me and hearing the noise, they tell me there is nothing they can do about the grinding/whining and that it is normal.
Thanks for the reply.

If you have done that yet, take it back to the dealership and get the latest update.
Whats the story right now with it?
After getting my clutch pack replaced, and getting reflashed, I'm having 0 problems right now. I did end up installing the E-Focus rear motor mount which helped alot with drivability and smoothness, and the Injected Tune which added power and took away the throttle response.
