Next question, Do you think the USAA warranty will cover a DCT problem?

Under the schedule of covered parts, it lists:
2) Transmission Assembly: Transmission case, transaxle case, transfer case, and all internally-lubricated parts, torque converter, vacuum modulator, cooler and metal cooler lines, and transmission mounts.
13) Power Train Electronics: ... Electronically-controlled transmission -- Transmission shift control processor and sensors.

Then under exclusions (from the sample):
Manual & Hydraulic clutch assembly such as, but not limited to; manual clutch pedal, clutch disc, pressure plate and throw-out bearing;

I'm not too familiar with the repairs on DCT transmissions but I have seen at least one post on someone getting their DCT replaced under the original factory warranty.

Just not sure what would be covered given the above warranty language. Any thoughts are appreciated.
