Manual or DCT? your thoughts
Iím looking at buying a GS, Iíve had a test drive of both a manual and a DCT and I think both of them would fit my requirements. I currently drive a manual and the DCT is appealing but I have concerns about the longevity of dry clutch automatics (as I believe this is). VW have had serious issues with their dry clutch autos and are now moving to wet clutches. I note that in China MG has a wet clutch auto but only on the 2 litre engines.
I appreciate thereís a 5 year warranty on these and I also understand that itís too early to know how reliable, or not, these are going to be, Iím just looking for other peopleís thoughts on this.
My head says stick to the safe option my heart says go for it, what have you got to lose (apart form a shed load of cash at resale time if they prove unreliable)
Your thoughts please
