Report says Chrysler is withdrawing its dual clutch 'auto' transmissions because of customer feed back.
Ford also reports complaints at low speed and in traffic.

I have constantly stated that IMO the Dual Clutch concept is fundamentaly flawed and that there is a much better development direction for future powertrains.

Yup, and it's Zeroshift's Seamless AMT.

I just read their brochure and it uses that misleading "seamless" lie too. You'd think someone would sue them. Perhaps a transmission expert with lots of money to throw away?
