This car has a dual clutch transmission. We bought it new and it never shifted correctly. Sometimes it shifted correctly but then next time it shifted the transmission up and down so quickly that the car seemed to be running out of gas. We took it in to correct this problem twice, under warranty, but it wasn't repaired. We were considering using Michigan's lemon law on this car. Then the message center posted "transmission error, Service immediately. Our local dealer replaced the transmission control module, and the clutches. Now it seems to be shifting correctly. They did it under the warranty.
