109k miles - Daughter was driving 45mph and it suddenly "made some loud sounds" (i think it was the RPMS shooting up trying to accelerate - not actually a mechanical noise) and would no longer accelerate. All was fine previously (except for the searching between 1st and 2nd gear these dct are known for). Towed home - and found putting it in D would surge a few times forward at low RPM, (like clutch plates catching briefly on a standard transmission vehicle) but no acceleration. No reverse. Car seems to be in neutral, when selector is in D. Towed to dealer - they reset the DCT with no change. They called Hyundai, and they said replace the transmission as a FIRST STEP at a cost of $7005 PLUS LABOR. I've since been scouring the internet trying to find info on changing it myself. It doesn't seem too difficult until you get to the whole programming part. Does the replacement DCT need to be programmed with a dealer's computer? Can it re-learn if you reset the car's computer? Is it driveable at all prior to the programming? Is there anything I can check or do short of simply replacing it? Tell-tale sign of failed Gate Shift actuator? The entire vehicle (used) cost less than a replacement tranny and labor. Seems insane... but not my first go-round with these shitty DCTs - as I had a '13 Focus that Ford bought back from me because of the ongoing DCT issues. Had I known the Veloster had it, I would not have recommended her to buy the vehicle. She loves the car, but now it has no go. Looking for people with more knowledge than me for some suggestions on how to proceed.
