For me, the bigger issue of the DCT as an "option" is that the dealers are only going to order that configuration, and then try to push them off onto the people that would have rather had a manual transmission. And Hyundai dealers in the US suck at ordering anything. Their sole concern is getting what they can on their lot, and then moving that inventory. Several dealers already unlocked "Legendary *******" achievements when the N first came out with allocation claims and forcing credit applications before a test drive (and they don't want to hear about cash buyers or having your own line of credit established). It's like the EVO 8 US launch all over again, but this time you'll see it with only the automatic on dealership lots. But I got mine, so whatever. If I only had the option of a first year DCT N, I'd probably just go to a Supra and skip the hatchback thing.
