There are quite a few reviews on this forum from 2011 owners and test drivers as well as a couple magazine reviews. The DCT is getting a lot of praise.

The 2010s do have a good deal going right now though, but depending on the car and equipment you want, a 2011 may even end up cheaper just because iPod connectivity and leather are now no-cost options.
