Is that to say the DCT doesn't actually work?Get the manual. Any time manual is offered vs automatic, the manual will always win in reliability over the long run. I go to Walmart and once in a while use the restroom, and they have those automatic flush toilets. That saves me the horrible work of pulling down a flush lever, but trouble is they never work correctly. Same idea applies to the DCT.
I intend to buy an extended service plan for my DCT, just for that eventuality then.
