Who is on their original dct seal and clutches still?

I sure am not. At 88,000 miles I'm on my 3rd set and my car is at the dealer now to see if I need em replaced again.

But to the topic of the thread. I've read a few comments on here saying that most aren't faulty and that most only come on here to complain....

So who is still on their original set of clutches and seals? Please post your mileage and if your car is driving the way it should or if you have had issues. I'm really curious if anyone has made it past 50,000 miles with a problem free dct.

~19k miles, March(?) 2013 build. Car bucks like a bronco and sounds like Will-it-Blend video, but only slips < 250rpm according to my dealership.

Factory clutch and "seals". Not a drop on the bellhousing (yes, I know not everybody with bad seals gets drips there).

I checked Oasis and there was no trans work done through Ford.

Car is a 2012 and has 65k miles. Just did my first oil change yesterday and to my suprise when I dropped the cover there were no leaks evident. Car is slightly querky on hills from a stop and does search for the proper gear occasionally. Otherwise I actually like the feel. Has a touch more sportiness to an otherwise boring car.

Btw, all bellhousing bolts were clean and appear to have never been removed.

O yeh...no updates to ecu found in oasis either. Everything works and it's the quietest vehicle I've ever owned.

Just turned 18,000 miles on our 9/2012 build 2013 5 door. Only issue so far is the 'grinding' sound that seems to appear when turning corners after it's driven for awhile. No shudder and no apparent leaks so far..

Is the sound, which I read is, 'due to bearing movement' related to the clutches? It seems that its related to the differential action due to when I notice it.
