Car looks good! Where did you take the pics? Fort Totten or Whitestone?
I have a 2020 GT and can't seem to find any info in the manual about using an additive with every oil change. Any idea where I can find this in the manual?Congrats! Looks good.
As for your questions,
Hope this helps.
- Technically no break in is required, however it's advised by Kia to keep it under 4k rpm for the first 500 or so miles and avoid aggressive throttle inputs or too much throttle, as well as varying your speed on the highway. The transmission will smooth out as the clutches break in, but it will never be conventional auto levels of smooth at low speeds due to the nature of a dual clutch transmission's inherent design.
- Not sure - my stays on between key cycles. Maybe they removed that functionality for the facelift? Play around in the menus and read through the owner's manual and you might find something.
- Any trim protectant should be fine, but I haven't seen a case of that stuff fading, so I wouldn't worry about it too much.
- Chevron Techron is what is usually recommended
Awesome, found it! Thank you very much!It’s under service. There’s that table with everything laid out. It should be in there.
100% True!The DCT operates a lot like a manual transmission with the computer controlling the clutches and shifting. The clutch engaging and disengaging as you feel won't harm it. It's like slipping the clutch yourself in a manual transmission car doing the same parking maneuver. If anything, it will just wear the clutches a little more than if you weren't doing it, but I wouldn't be worried about it.
