The rental SEL I had shuddered at low speed and vibrated at a stop and had about 18,000 miles on it.

I attributed it to being somewhat like how a real manual behaves at low speed, upon takeoff, or if you try to stop the car completely while still in gear. It'll shudder and buck and eventually die...but that's where the auto part of the DCT comes in...it'd shudder and smooth out a bit at the point a real manual would die.
