I was joking but some might find Laughing out loud at someone else's misfortune mean spirited. I personally rejected a premium because of the turbo and I didn't understand the workings of the WDCT. Apparently they operate well but the HP oil pump fails.He is not being mean, just being realistic based on his experience with a failed DCT and Hyundai's poor warranty response.
The vast majority of SCs are fine but if you get a bad DCT you could be paying for an unusable vehicle for months. It would be pretty hard to be upbeat in that situation IMO.
