Hi folks, I'm kinda new here. Been lurking for a bit. I got my 2019 GT N-line back in September 2021. Dark grey. I love the thing. Just over 7k miles when I got it through Carvana. Despite Carvana horror stories going around, the whole process was relatively painless for me. I also figured it was lower risk, seeing as the car has plenty of factory warranty left on it.

Anyway! Gonna keep digging through the posts here and learning more about my GT. When I started looking for a car, I knew I wanted a hatch, something fun to drive with a bit of utility to it, but wasn't aware of the GT as an option. Only the Veloster, which I kind of hate from a style perspective. I came across these GTs and it was love at first sight.

If you have any tips, tricks, or gotchas about the car, I'd love to know. Thanks!

The only thing to be aware of if your car is the DCT version is to not let it creep. Letting the car creep as you would with a typical automatic transmission with your foot off the brake will cause the clutch to slip in the DCT which could create premature wear, Use the "Auto Hold" feature - it works like a charm.

Thanks for this Ron! Exactly the kind of info I'm looking for. I do indeed have the DCT, and will make sure Auto Hold is on from here out. One thing to clarify: I should do this regardless of whether I'm shifting manually or letting the auto handle it?

Both ways.
One tidbit of interest is that you can save a fraction of a second when pulling away from a stop. Since you don't have to keep your foot on the brake pedal and pivot it to the gas pedal to go, time is saved - LOL. Just keep your foot on the gas pedal without pressing until you want to go, then press. Try it - its kind of fun.
