    1.6l turbo dual clutch transmission

    Hey folks. Just wondering what people think about the dual clutch transmission in the 1.6l turbo in the 2019 optima ex? It is anco completely different technology as compared to traditional transmissions. I would think the lack of transmission fluid is pretty cool. But the tranny cutches could be wear items that I would think would be very expensive to replace. Any thoughts on the expected longevity of this type of transmission vs traditional transmissions? I've seen this type is only in 5% of all vehicles in the us. Thanks!

    I'd say take a test drive first to see you like the "feeling" as it's completely different from a conventional AT.
    As far as fluid, manual has inspect and under severe driving, replace every 75k miles, so it's not dry.
    Quite a few don't like the DCT, so maybe 5% is all you'll see.
