Peeps,
Is anything in the drive train or other vital organ areas brand new 'bleeding edge' technology? Reason I ask is I own a Ford Focus with a DCT transmission which should never have been released to the general public (aka victims) and I don't want to make the same mistake twice. If the Engine & Transmission in the Kona are true and tested in previous models that would make me feel better. Of course there's no guarantee as tried and tested technology can be subject to updates, but it's a start.


Thanks

Looks to me like everything in the kona is tried and true. The 1.5t with the dct has been in the tucson since 2016, and also in the elantra turbo. The 2.0 with the 6-speed auto has also seen service in other models.

Since the software update the turbo/dct seems to be fine and the 2.0 has a good history. I know some folks here have had issues with the dct, but it appears that more people are happy with it than otherwise.
