    It's absolutely amazing! There really is no other way to drive this car. I've driven an automatic all my life and this kind of makes me feel a little badass even though it's still an auto :P it's a dual dry clutch tranny do the shifts are super smooth especially if you shift around 3-4k rpm. Plus it's supposed to get better mileage than the other transmissions but idk for sure. Bottom line, get it. And don't forget the turbo

    I love my DDCT. You get the sound of someone beautifully shifting through the gears with none of the effort it takes to shift this car. And the shifts are soooo smooth..

    I must admit that with some of the problems people had, I prayed to the Fiat power train deity for a good one when the car was made. My prayers were answered.

    Check out the videos on you tube put up by Fiat on the DDCT. It is a very elegant design.
