Just wondered if anyone else has had transmission issues. Dual Clutch and complete failure of transmission that had to be replaced. It took over a month to do and required a lot of back and forth to get it covered under warranty. Since I had a modified exhaust and intake they were hesitant to warranty it. It' not fixed up but seeing others with coil issues and so on I wonder what will be next?

I have been having issues the entire time of ownership but it has been a little more prevalent lately with the car A. Not wanting to downshift to 1st gear at a near stop (Likely moving at 1mph at stop signs) and B. The car slipping the shift between 2nd and 3rd gear very badly. This might have something to do with the car not entering 1st gear because it happens in similar situations.

I think I am starting to develop a picture in regards to the limitations of the DCT. Appears if performance is increased through a tune or piggy back unit it should stay under the 250 ft/lb limitation. The clutches will be the achilles heel as it is with other manufactures. Is always tempting to exceed the limit but now I know I will have problems if I do.

Unlike the new 8spd DCT of the Veloster N and the 2021 Elantra N, (made for its 275hp, 260lb-ft 2.0L T-GDI engine) which has a wet clutch, the 7spd DCT of the Veloster Turbo Ultimate and Elantra GT N-Line is a dry clutch. I find it likely that it just doesn't have the ability to be pushed beyond a certain spec.

To the OP: That said, an intake and an exhaust shouldn't be enough to push you outside of spec for the DCT, they're not insane horsepower gains. Still, if you're having issues, pull the intake and put the stock one back in temporarily to get a dealer to take care of you.

When my car is cold and it is cold outside, it tends to slip the clutch a lot in 1st gear. Sometimes it looks like I have never driven a manual before and the car is bucking. Once it is warmed up, it doesn't seem to have any issues.

I noticed the same. After warm up no problem. We are talking DCT....right? I have never heard of a 6-speed having an issue unless the clutch is wacked.
