My 2018 DCT readily and quickly upshifts through the gears. In sport mode it hangs in lower gears much longer. I found sport annoying for street driving so I very rarely use it. My car (I'm in the USA) has only Normal and Sport modes (no ECO mode).

I think you may have it, thanks for the responses everyone!

I punched the car from a stop to 130km an hour yesterday and it shifted just fine at about 5k rpm



Make me think about my footwork on the pedal.



Do you guys just put pedal to the metal thru 5 gears or do you paddle shift at intervals while feathering the gas pedal, letting go when you want to shift momentarily etc with the DCT?

Hmmm

I don't use the paddles much. Haven't felt the need. I've never even considered easing up on the gas between shifts. Why bother? I'm sure they programmed the transmission to handle the shifts at full power just fine. They have to consider that most drivers will treat this transmission like a typical automatic.
