I don't think they were or are imune from problems. I think the initial ones were more performance oriented, and that some of the programming choices made resulted in less longevity. Then they softened the mix, and you cannot do what you originally were able to do, with the DSG (as I understand it). I have heard that the DSG is a good trans -- but it is a bear to fix, if it should go south. I'm not sure how the rebuild situation works with this trans... I don't think it is anything other than a factory-rebuild kind of trans; not just Joe Schmo's shop, down the road...
