Can't buy a sporty car and complain about stiff suspension IMO. Should have bought a Honda Civic.
With that said, many complaints about the DCT, several been replaced multiple times, cars being bought back for that reason. It's a dry clutch DCT which is jerky to begin with, and most people used to driving regular automatics will have a hard time getting used to it. I only had slight interest in it until I drove one that wasn't behaving properly and wasn't responding to commands so I bought the 6MT (my first choice) and haven't looked back.
Hyundai is currently testing a wet clutch 8-speed DCT that will find it's way into the i30 N and Veloster N probably for the 2021 model year and I expect it to be worlds better in every way.
