Except the DSG has proven faulty multiple times an VW doesn't cover gearbox issues... Shit not so long ago they had to update the mechatronix (sp) because of all the faults it was generating... A lot of people are complaining that when a dsg tranny goes out. You are SOL... That the repairs are outrageous.. Have you had ur clunking issue shifting into 6th gear? Yeah common DSG issue that VW won't admit to. And they say it won't affect performance.. Which makes me wonder wth is that. So many electronics nowadays controlling ur car takes away the driving experience. Idk my opinion of course. I know many f1- and high en sports cars are converting over to DSG-like tranny's.. But a true sportscar is one that comes with a manual.. Of course a computer can do math for us..much faster and 100% accurate but Does that mean we should stop teaching it in school?
