Have gone through various posts on net and it seems that DCT has a problem of over heating in bumper to bumper traffic

Admin Accepted Answer

Well some of the owners yes did reported in heating issue in DCT Transmission of Seltos, and reason is evident its a Dry Clutch abuse by driving style. Unlike Wet Clutch which is well lubricated and is there in performance oriented engine or can take on stress conditions better, for a dry clutch car - some checks required from owner to prevent transmission heat up issue

> After coming on standstill at red light - advisable to slot gear in Neutral, reason if you continue applying brake in drive mode then car transmission will also be engaged in and may possibly cause heat up

> Avoid driving in Eco Mode in heavy traffic conditions. Best to select Normal Mode

> Avoid pressing brakes in half way, Fully press the brakes to disengage clutch when in traffic

> In Bumper to Bumper traffic, try to avoid crawl, rather wait for the car in the front to move and keep distance so that can accelerate in and stop instead of crawl kind
