DCT issues on my Creta remain unsolved even after 2 years & 40000 km

While I am disappointed that the issue has not been resolved, I must point out that the dealer team has been prompt in trying to resolve the issue.

BHPian iamitp recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Posting an update after continuously getting the same Transmission Control Malfunction error despite two workshop visits to my Hyundai service station, and one home visit by their technical team. I have also been in touch with the Hyundai area parts manager.

Sometimes the car does not engage even-number gears, till it is restarted. Sometimes it engages all gears but I still get the error message on HUD and the check engine light. I just do not get any peace of mind.

While I am disappointed that the issue has not been resolved, I must point out that the dealer team has been prompt in trying to resolve the issue.

My DCT failure issue remains unresolved even after 2 years and almost 40,000 KMs.

Here's what BHPian heydj had to say on the matter:

DCT / DSG gearbox are not made for India. Before buying one knows it's possible there will be issues.

I bought Rapid DSG in 2015 hoping no failure however DSG failed after 20k kms and 2 years of ownership out of blue

My friend bought a Creta DCT and exactly 1 year later on highway while with his family it failed and since then he keeps saying replaced dct does not have same driving feel.

Hence my input is driving pleasure is not just about gearbox instead about gearbox engine mating. Hence don't buy dct car instead look for alternative car with good engine and gearbox combo.
