Yeah it seems people somehow think those of use having this problem simply either do not understand the transmission characteristics or that somehow we drive it "wrong". OK, let me first say I have the typical DCT characteristics and those are expected and I do not complain about them. Second I am confident that I know how to put the little lever into "D" and press the gas. Come on people, the noise is not something we are making up nor is it something we are doing. I know there are several of you superior people out there that know how to put your car into "D" and press the gas better than the rest of us, so please give us the instructions on how to drive our car so we no longer get the noise.
