Here we go again . . . having a torque converter does not define a transmission's ability to do its own shifting independent of active driver input.I have been saying that for a while now. Finally people get it.
This is not an automatic transmission. An automatic trans has a torque converter, the DCT has two manual clutches that are electronically controlled.
IOW, the shifts can still be automated (that "automatic" thing) in a DCT.
I'm not saying that somehow makes a DCT a full-on slushbox or even a 10R80-level of conventional TC-automatic, only that because it does include automation and can be driven in a fully automatic shifting mode it's still an automated transmission.
