    @ Mayank | What about Kia Seltos DCT type is it as well a dry clutch system or wet ??

    Mayank i have bought A Kia Seltos gtx plus dct which is the top variant despite reading the issues elsewhere . After costing 20lakhs of my hard earned money,it's just a horrible experience. As my car is mainly driven by driver and sometimes by me,we specifically asked the sales person about rules of driving. But they didn't have the simplest idea about that.from the first day of delivery it showed jerking, vibration,sudden stopping..When climbing steep climb like from my basement garage it's tends to roll back. On the way of 1st servicing it got repeated warnings of getting high transmission temperature and stopped multiple times. Now it's in kia service centre for 14days and they said they have to change the ECU. now I am reading all over in the Internet that I should use the break fully,should have to go to neutral in all traffic jam ,should have never use brake and accelerator simultaneously,should never lower the speed of the car less than 10km in bumper to bumper traffic and even after following all the rules your gears can have problems. If you ever think of buying an automatic please don't go for dry DCT like kia,u can go for conventional torque converter automatic or even CVT. I AM UTTERLY FRUSTATED with my experience

    @ Bansilal | Any response to Mayank question will greatly help new buyers

    I have researched for Kia Seltos as I have pre-booked it's DCT top variant. It is a dry clutch system and there has been a case of the DCT seltos buyer which has shown screenshot of transmission overheat in bumper to bumper traffic. Well to be frank DCT's are like advanced automatics and much more efficient but everything has it's own pros and cons and here DCT's con is heating issue only. It is how you drive a DCT. Talking about Hyundai Venue DCT it is clearly mentioned in it's owner manual so as to what precautions to take while driving DCT variant either on hills or in bumper to bumper traffic. But I read Kia Seltos owner manual which doesn't even tell what DCT type is there. For buyers like me out there, I will be test driving diesel AT top end GT line variant too as prices for both Petrol and Diesel are same for top end.

    Facts A. Hyundai india never informed the consumers that DCT will overheat in bumper to bumper taffic during the pre sales and sales cycle B. Overheating is mentioned in the car owner manual which during sales cycle no one shows to the potential customer C. If you reverse and drive the car a couple of times during parking the temp will go up A clear case of cheating by hyundai india
