go to the dealer and have them check out your DSG
I bought a used 2010 GTI with 37k on it. I am loving the ride, more than I even anticipated. It has the DSG, and I enjoy the multitude of ways I can choose to drive this vehicle.
I do have one issue of concern that I would like some feed back on. Occassionally, when driving hard, the car makes a horrible studder and doesn't accellerate. It's almost as if the vehicle misses a shift and is governing itself quickly and harshly. I haven't had enough concentration to check RPM's when it does it.
It feels horrible, scares me and makes me wonder what i'm doing, what I need to get checked, or if this is something others have experienced.
Pic for good measure.
Man..you guys are fast.
I took it to a dealer prior to purchase...and they informed me of the DSG 40k maintenance.
I'm under the impression that fluids/maintenance will be $450'ish. I'm ok with that.
I'm overly hopeful now, that I don't have a dsg problem.
Try to avoid running your car below 1/4 tank. Running really low is not good for the fuel system in general, and 1/4 tank will give you a nice safety margin.
Did you put on the BBS CH's or did it come with those? Nice!
2011 GTI AB DSG 4D CSG — APR Stage 2 / APR Carbonio / 42DD Downpipe / S3 IC / DG Springs / Enkei Raijin's / etc.
BBS's came on it. It has the autobahn leather. I was sold.
On another note and why I brought up fuel. When driving to the bar, on low fuel, I got the same nasty feeling while not shifting. I was in tiptronic and the car just studdered horribly, so there was no shift taking place. Pulled over immediately, applied fuel and NO issue since. I will report back and still get an appointment for Dsg under maintenance.
