Is using an electronic parking brake with a Dual Clutch Transmission the correct process for stop/start driving?

Hi all,

I've been driving manuals for my driving life (6 years), and I'm due to pick up my new KIA Proceed (Dual Clutch Auto) next month.

I can't really find the info online, and I have a question about the way automatic cars work.

Here's the example; I come to a stop at set of lights, I don't want to dazzle the people behind me with my brake lights. In a manual, I'd just pull the hand brake and no issues.

In an auto, if I let off the brake obviously I'll creep forwards. Now the KIA Proceed has an electric parking brake, and on the test drive the dealer said to just pull that and it'll auto disconnect once you apply accelerator (it did).

My only concern is whether or not this would be bad for the clutch. Would the car carry on trying to creep forwards and be held back by the parking brake, causing clutch heat/wear, or is the car smart enough to not engage the clutch until the accelerator is pressed?

I appreciate it's probably an easy answer, but having not driven automatics before it's something I want to get right.

Thanks in advance!

I tested 0-100 times for some cars to show the difference between automatic, manual and dual clutch transmissions. This test isn't 100% accurate because the gear ratios are often different, but the show what I wanted to see.

Trying to sell our 2012 Focus - how to word description about Dual Clutch transmission?

The car (2012 base SE) has about 75,000 miles on it and a few minor bumps and superficial marks. I am struggling of a way to word the description so the transmission issue does not scare away any buyers. We’ve taken the car in multiple times and always fixed under warranty but it’s not fixed. It drives okay, you can just feel a little hesitation in the transmission when accelerating and a little high pitched whine at high speeds.

Any advice?

Also how much do you think I could get for it? Less mileage but an older car.

Can someone help me explain the difference between a dual-clutch transmission and a traditional automatic?

I have a B8.5 S4 with a dual-clutch transmission and I understand how it works but I don't understand how it differs from a traditional automatic. I know a traditional one has a torque converter but Idk what that really does. What are the pros/cons between the two apart from shifting speed?

Manually actuated dual clutch transmissions ?

From what I understand many car companies today don’t want to spend money developing a new manual transmission so they basically figure out a way to modify their existing dual clutch transmissions to be shifted manually.

What does this entail exactly ? Could you convert any dual clutch transmission to make it manually shiftable ? Would this have any effect on the strength or power/torque rating of the transmission ?

Do you drive a fairly new car with a dual clutch transmission? Share your experience.

I drove a Maserati with a over 10 years ago, and frankly I was disappointed. The shifts were not very smooth during normal acceleration. From what I understand, dct’s have come a long way since then..

Do you own a modern car with a DCT? Any frustrations? Do you like it better than a manual transmission? How does it handle starts on an incline?

Edit I’ve never driven a car with a DCT.

How does a dual clutch transmission start the engine?

I know that a manual connects the starter to the flywheel and torque converters connect the starter to the flexplate but I don’t know how a dct starts. Anyone care to enlighten me?
