2020 turbo ultimate is my goal but just now learning the transmission problems as I love manual but I have a bad left leg cant do a clutch. So dct is my option. Hoping 2020 is the year they've addressed all DCT issues.

The last DCT issue/problem was in the 2016 model and that was Gen 1. You should be good.

I've been reading for 3 hours using search function couldn't really find any recent issues for the dct. I've read that I have to drive it different than a standard auto does the owners manual explain that in detail? I love this car and I'll buy one soon I'm excited

I doubt the Manual tells much more than how to use the different driving mode functions. Rolling stops might be harder to do or feel weirder in a DCT. You can put it into manual shift mode though and take more control over the car in moments like these. I drive around in manual all the time in my gen1 for this reason. Oh and inching up is not recommended in a dct car. Imagine a manual transmission and someone just letting the clutch in and out as they inch up. It will wear out just the same. I'm sure it is mostly unnoticeable though and I have heard nothing about recalls after 2016 either. Welcome and please share some pics when you get your car!
