With luck '12 owners will get retrofitted with the updated equipment. Or at least as units come in, as opposed to a complete recall...

My DCT runs nicely, save for "the noise" which - either which way - is normal. Most of the time it can't be heard, so I treat it as a non-issue. If something happens, it does - until then, no problem. And even with "the noise", the transmission is smooth as silk - still the best I've ever driven, noise or not.

I do wonder, for those who claim there are no problems, do they even know what "the noise" is? I've had passengers who've not heard "the noise" at all...
