The stator in the torque convertor is prone to failing if you boil the fluid.

Sooooo back to my statement that you will replace parts more frequently in a manual trans over a DCT trans.


Lets play a game, what will need replacing first

a)Clutch from a manual trans.
b)Any part from a DCT system.

Based on volkswagens history with DSG, you will be replacing the entire gearbox at least once in the cars lifetime.
