Can I say there were no complaints? No, but there doesn't seem to be the same level of whinging and whining in the European press about this vs here on the North American Continent.
Pretty much this, thanks for pointing it out.
The DCT has different flavours across the globe and sure its not the most amazing DCT I beg you to go look at the DSG complaints from VW or hell the DCT complaints from ANY manufacturer.
Check out the Veloster boards, same kinds of complaints as we have here.
Its just that some people here have an axe to grind against the car for some personal slight.
