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:
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.
