Just picked up a 2018 Elantra GT Sport, with 33,000 km on it. This is my 3rd Hyundai vehicle, Really liking the pep of this car and the leather seats moon roof, etc. I do notice a little bit of a hesitation when pulling out from my parking spot, in the morning. Is it due to the DCT transmission? Or do I need the car to arm up a little more before driving?

Seems like it…. I’m in no rush, I’ll just let car war lm up to temp and drive…. I went from a 6 speed manual to DCT. So little different.

Congrats and welcome - post a pic when you can!

Too bad we can't get the i30n here in the United States. I think that's the same with Canada, right?

I had the same issue on my elantra sport 18 started with jerking out of a parking spot in thr mornings eventually it got worse to a point where from it would happen from a stop or stop and go traffic car would jerk or hesitate the problem is the dual clutch you need to replace that I had mine replaced under the warranty problem.went away car felt brand new after it has nothing to do with tempature there is a TSB bulletin on the dual clutch I found online if I were you change the clutch while its under warranty0

Where did you find the TSB bulletin? Also I have switched from regular gas to premium and that has helped a lot.

Thanks for the info, I was able to find the Hyundai TSB for the car. I had originally taken the car to my local dealership and complained about the issue, they ran a quick diagnostic and told me this is expected for a DCT! And sent me on my way. Wasn’t impressed.

I have emailed Hyundai directly with an email regarding the dealership, plus the Info I have for what is going on and the TSB numbers plus pictures of TSB document.
See if I get a reply….
