I had to give up my beloved 5 speed because my wife has left hip issues which makes it difficult for her to use a clutch. I know the experience won't be the same, but it's as close as I can get.
I have a '12 Ti and the only thing I hate about the DCT is the selectshift.
When I manually shift from 2nd to 3rd there is about a 1 sec delay before 3rd engages and my rpms shoot up 600 - 1000. All other gear changes (upshift and downshift) are quick. I have gone to the dealer and was told this is normal behaviour =\
Not sure if anyone has experienced this in the 2013s but there are a few of us on here with the 2012s that have this issue.
