  • 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.

    I own a 2021 kia seltos 1.4tgdi dct model.In terms of performance it's one of the best i have driven.On open roads it can easily beat the likes of innova, Fortuner and all big guys with its sheer speed and dual clutch just makes you zoom past other cars while they figure to get the car in right gear.Power is in its dual clutch and turbo engine.The dual clutch is the best, It's like someone is choosing the right gear for you constantly.Features wise one of the best and the 360 camera quality is on par with high end cars.I have not driven the diesel automatic on highway but it will not be as quick as the 1.4tgdi especially with torque converter.If you enjoy driving a good car this is the best you can get, The top end petrol variant.Mileage average i got is 13kmpl with half aggressive highway and half on eco mode in city combined.I will take that anyday with the performance the car is giving.I went for top end petrol because of its performance and dual clutch which i know is drivers best friend.I didn't choose diesel because the same engine is being offered from base variant of sonet and all the way upto top end seltos.There is no value for money in the top variant for diesel.You can get the same engine for much less cost.

    Pathetic after-sales service.My car went in for accidental damage claim.Though i was promised a cashless claim in writing, It wasn't approved, Idk why.My car has been in the kia service center for over 3 weeks and yet they do not have the complete parts to fix it.When i call them, They keep on delaying and no listening or proper grievance redressal mechanism is in place at all.Worst experience than any other automobile company ever.Buy from kia only if you would like to waste your time, Effort and get irritated while they sit there and do nothing about it.

    Overall it's good, 7 out of 10.But it's door hinges, Interiors need improvement.Safety is again something very important which kia needs to focus on.Looks, Road presence, Stability, Acceleration are best in class.Suspension is again on which kia needs to work.
