• Q. I’m planning to pick a KIA Seltos DCT, but these heating issues of the gearbox I hear really scares me. Can somebody put some light on this topic. Like is this the case with most DCT or is it a issue with the Seltos?

    I) its a dry clutch DCT, No heating issues 100 %. 2) However most people are ignorant about the art of driving a DCT & end up with heating issues in extreme conditions & is due to their ignorance & not the fault of the car.3) I suggest you assimilate the art of driving a DCT ( Theory) from Google & put it into practice, while driving. There will be no heating issues at all.

    It's not dry gear box. Oil sealed gearbox, over heating problem is soled & now they use minaral oil in gearbox instead of synthetic oil. This is in my knowledge. you can confirm with Volxwagen service center with out hesitation to clear your dought

    Been 7 months i bought gtx plus turbo dct, no such issues fortunately no heating at all, took it for long trips also, no issues. Only problem rather a small one is the fuel efficiency, which is like 7 to 8 in city. Highway 13+. Biggest issue is service time and quality.

    Hi, I have purchased seltos htk imt diesel, It was delivered 2 weeks back.Existing imt users, Anyone faced issues with creep/crawl/hill start assist functionality in first gear in imt gearbox, When i am stuck at traffic signals, And roads has small slopes like 5 degrees or 10 degrees, Then in first gear, The crawl/hill start assist functionality does not work as expected, My car rolls backwards slightly and i have to manually press accelerator asap to avoid further rollback.The car does not hold for 3 seconds at all, It rolls backwards as soo as i release the break.Same thing happens for reverse gear, If there is 5-10 degrees slope, Car moves forward, And i have to press accelerator asap to avoid movement ahead.Fyi, Hill assist feature working fine on steep slopes in hilly roads, Mall ramps.The car holds for 2-3 seconds and enough time to move ahead without rollback.
