DCT Complaints Thread
 
Do it here. Stop flooding threads that have nothing to do with DCT or transmissions in general with the complaints. We all know a lot of you have problems without it being brought up everywhere, every second, of every day.

The irony of a yet another thread complaining about all the threads of complaints [poke]

I do agree, though, the DCT threads are all over. But same with MFT threads, despite there being an official sticky thread on the topic. So I'm not sure if this will help, but I agree with the idea, BetaDnB.

I'd say it would be better if the mods would merge all the DCT complaining threads into a single one. And make it "sticky" so no one say "I didn't see it". [deviltail]

Maybe you missed it. This isn't a thread complaining about complaint threads. This is a thread for people to complain about their DCTs instead of flooding threads that have nothing to do with DCT.

People should be complaining to their dealer where the problems are likely to get resolved. Complaining on a forum just gets you a lot of "yeah mine does that too" or "my DCT is perfect and I love it" responses.

I think what we really need here is a DCT FAQ and a list of known problems/work-arounds/TSB's etc... You know, useful stuff.

Should be required reading before you allowed to buy a Focus with the DCT. Also should be required before posting in this thread.

Thank you.

Now maybe they will get out of other threads that have nothing to do with transmissions at all much their bitching about the DCT.

I do have this to add:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dual-clutch_transmission

Seriously, I'm using Wikipedia so you have a general idea of how these transmissions even work before anyone comes and [:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)] about it.

DCTs do not have torque converters. That is why among other reasons, they will never be as smooth as traditional automatics.

Which isn't really a bad thing.

That sluggish nature at low speeds? Get used to it. THATS EVERY DCT OR SMG EVER MADE.

If the DSG in VWs GTI still acts funny at low speeds, why would I expect Fords Powershift to fare much better?

I can understand if you have genuine issues with it and need service help, but enough with the "oh its not smooth, oh its bad at low speeds, or its jittery, oh its this or that or whatever else"

Your fault if you didn't properly understand what you paid money for.
