A lot of the time it's the service advisors fault for not being knowledgeable and up to date. I'd go to another dealer.

anything new. I am sick of how my latest update makes the trans shudder going into first and how 3rd gear in "sport" takes 2-4 seconds to shift when I click the button.

I have to double check the gear, but I think my 3rd gear takes a long time to shift (up) too! I end up double-shifting because I hear the revs and think that I didn't press the (+) button hard enough, so I press it again and end up bogging the engine.

Hi all I've been following this forum since 11/11 finally got around to registering. I bought a '12 SE sedan with DCT 12/12. It ran like a Swiss watch for 12-13k then started getting an intermittent clutch chatter in 2nd gear that got progressively worse until the weather got cooler. We had a warm spell in December so I took it to my dealer with a very detailed description of when it does it and what kind of driving it takes to duplicate it along with telling them that it is in fact leaking oil inside the bellhousing. They were very nice and gave me a loaded Milan for a loaner. I told them that as long as they don't smoke in it the tech, shop foreman, service writer, service manager or general manager was welcome to use it as their personal car, just don't call me and say it "did not verify". Guess what 3 days later I got the DNV call. I asked about the leak and they said yes it is leaking and they put dye in the engine oil and want it back in 1K miles. It goes back Wednesday so we'll see how that goes. By the way to all that have felt offended by the way they have been treated by their service adviser or talked to like they don't know what they are talking about I've been an ASE Master Technician since 1985 and they treat me the same way.

I read a post about public knowledge about TSBs, in case it isn't known there are several non manufacturer shop manual services that provide quarterly TSB updates. One of those service companies is owned by a national parts chain. So the guy that was a stock broker up to 2008 and is now a part store parking lot master tech with an OBD II code reader also has access to TSBs and is more than willing to print them out for anybody.

Dropped it off this morning and picked up an Edge Limited loaner. My service writer called after lunch to excitedly tell me there is a new bulletin released about the transmission input shaft seals and clutch replacement. I asked if that's tsb 11-12-13 dated 12/28/11 and got crickets for a few seconds then a sheepish yep.

Hi, I've got about 16k miles and I'm having issues with my transmission. Sometimes it's hesitation from a stop other times its grinding while shifting from 1 to 2. I did get the TSB in from last May but I'm still having some issues with the car.

After a month of no issues I had the same transmission shudder today. I was in stop and go traffic, probably for the first time in a month, and it didn't like the rolling, stopping, rolling, stopping, accelerating, that I was doing. I don't think the automated manual is cut out for stop and go. If I had known that I would have suffered with the manual and had better control of things.

Just got mine back. The tech said it was the first one they have seen and about 1/2 quart of oil came out of the bellhousing when he pulled it. Shifted smoother than ever, hopefully stays that way.

That's what I was trying to convince my dealer to do! But they didn't open it... maybe I can get them to open it come spring?
