My wife has a 17 optima LX turbo. For a long time now it’s had these feeling like when you’re driving a clutch and you let the clutch out enough without giving it gas. Kind of lurches and has no power, you have to give it a lot of gas and then it will go. No issues while driving, only at stops, taking off and slow speeds (under 5mph). Tonight it was really bad and even started making a horrible noise. Well crap I can’t post a video, it was a loud knocking and my entire leg was shaking as I pulled into garage. The rpms never change so I think it’s something with the transmission. I’ve taken it before and I was told it’s normal as it’s a double clutch transmission. This is not normal. It’s a safety hazard as if you go to pull out in traffic it just lurches and hesitates.
Has anyone else had this issue?

That transmission is terrible and if you search DCT clutch issue you'll find others with a problem.
