Tuscon dual clutch transmission

Postby Phone Surgeon » July 22nd, 2018, 6:50 pm

Hey guys im considering buying a new tucson and the rep was telling me about its dual clutch trans. And in our traffic alot of people get issues with ir because they usually roll forward in traffic instead of properly using the gas and brakes. Any of you have any ans experience such issues with it?

I was also considering one. Its not an issue per se but rather having to change how "yuh born and grow" drive an automatic. It's not natural at this point. I don't want a vehicle where i have to actively think about driving it correctly in case i damage it.

There are many reported issues in the US related to overheating etc and various dealer updates that "fixed" the issues. We all know how our dealers operate here.

I purchased 1. have it a mth now. its a car to get used too. not a ladies ride at all. I love it. but its been a mth and still getting use to the driving dynamics of that transmission. so far I have experience slips 4 times. at 500kms it refused to climb a steep hill. kept neutralising. but owners manual said first 1500kms it may be prone to this. other times were pretty slight. now I am up to 3000kms and it has broken in nicely. yesterday I was in traffic on highstreet in san Fernando and I kept getting the warning to cease riding the accelerator, depress brakes. hated that since I knew I wasn't abusing it then. overall I think its quite fun. but you gotta have patience with it at first. I think its a good buy

Posted a reply on the other thread. It's not only related to the Tucson. Any dsg will behave the same way. You have to understand how to drive it. No torque converter taking the load so u can't keep riding the accelerator at crawl speeds or up slopes eg exiting imax.

If starting from an incline use auto hold or handbrake.

The computer will disengage the clutch to prevent wear when it gets to hot and nothing u can do about it.
When it runs it runs great, but it doesn't like traffic n to much heat.

Yes @strugglerzinc, you do have to actively think about it
