    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

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

    I am driving the DCT variant for 45 days now. I didn't see the issue till the 1st servicing. After 1st service I am consistently getting the issue. Its difficult to drive the car in bumper to bumper traffic which is pretty usual in Bangalore.

    Hyundai Venue features a dry type dual-clutch transmission (DCT) which has its own pros and cons. If compared with the wet clutch type DCT, they do have a lower life span but provide with better fuel efficiency. Moreover, the life of the transmission, be it manual or automatic, would depend solely on the driving conditions and timely service management of the car.Read more:- Hyundai Venue Review: First Drive

    @ Nice | I used a VW vento auto for a while. It had no heating issues of that sort.

    The germans have mastered the dual clutch transmission.The americans and koreans are trying but of course cant match the germans.Japanese are happy with a CVT.

    Strange but I have faced this problem immediately after the first service.
