And it really doesn't have to be 1% or widespread if the issue is real.
VW just needs to investigate the issue scientifically by reviewing DSG repair logs from all dealers.
Less than 1% of people who own iPods have reported that their iPod devices(just seen this on the news) have caught on fire or exploded for no reason. Apple has no comment. If news like this gets traction, it could give Apple iPods a bad name and kill sales.
The same can happen if VW doesn't do some investigation now before the reporters catch wind of this and put their spin on things like VW has been notified of the issue and severity but since the percentage is low, they have no comment.
I've personally only had a few small issues.
1. Going reverse on a hill, I get the bucking bronco issue.
2. Sometimes when I floor it from a dead stop, it shifts(slams) roughly through the gears.
3. Once when I tried to merge into traffic from a stop, the car did not move for about 1-2 seconds when I gave it gas then suddenly took off and I almost didn't make into traffic safetly & could have caused an accident.
It's time VW at least do some scientific research and investigation into the DSG issues before a death or serious accident occurs.
