One thing that is never discussed is what the cost to "fix" a DCT transmission would be should it go defective outside of warranty. I plan on keeping my car for a very long time. Yeah sure, it's not like I couldn't afford to fix the car, but 5 years from now I'd probably rather drop that $3k-$5k on a vacation or a Porsche.
