Has anyone experience a hesitation when starting off slow? I sometimes get this and then it lurches forward
I have experienced this. It happens mostly when I am on a slope and start off with minimal pressure on the gas pedal. I presume it is one of the idiocentrciteis of a Dual Clutch transmission.I've also noticed placing my foot squarely on the pedal helps too. Having driven an MGB for years, pivoting on my heel is a rather bad habit!Has anyone experience a hesitation when starting off slow? I sometimes get this and then it lurches forward
That's because BMW uses a "wet clutch" rather than Kia's dry clutch. Dry saves money and allows the 7-speed DCT to be a reasonable packaging option for this car, wet would likely be cost-prohibitive.Normal for a Kia DCT perhaps. My BMW M4 and a earlier M3 did not have any issues. Of course I could buy 3 Seltos for the price of one M car.
I have experienced what others have. It only happens when trying to creep forward from a stop but turning off the engine stop and go button completely got rid of this issue. I have never owned a dual clutch transmission so I'm not aware of its behavior but I do like how smooth and fast it shifts. This is my wife's car and I haven't had much time to play around with it but I like the car alot, and considering getting aI’m totally surprised. I don’t have this behaviour at all. I leave it in Smart mode. Maybe it’s my driving style having owned dual clutch before. Honestly it feels pretty much like a tc transmission only shifts much quicker.
I’m not sure why you keep going back to your experience - it’s been explained that this is totally normal behavior for a dry clutch DCT. If you had the experience you’re claiming, you wouldn’t be posting this. Congrats on owning a BMW, you’re in the wrong forum for price conversation regarding different manufacturers.I experience this when I reverse out of my driveway, stop, shift to drive, and try to drive off at a normal speed. I have driven many cars with DCT's transmission
