Here's one of the problems, malfunctions/leaks/updates aside it STILL won't feel like an "automatic".
Promoted as the "automated manual transmission" it is, there might have been more understanding of the benefits & limitations.
This article posted by Wavesine was one of the best I've seen on the transmission & how it was intended to work.
And NOT telling users about the features that attempt to "train" them in it's best use was a major "Fail". This should have been in both sales literature & the owner's manual.
"The Economy benefits of a Manual, automated for easy everyday use" might have been one good advertising line...
