I have recently purchased Passat 2010 2.0T DSG. I have noticed the following issues:
1. The car moves backwards on the uphill when I takeoff my foot from the brake pedal
2. The car has strange vibrations when it comes to full stop (downshift from the 2.gear to the 1.gear I assume)
3. The car does not respond immediately on the pressed accelerator when it is in the full stop or when it moves slowly
Does anybody know about TSB regarding the listed issues above.
2. The vibrations when coming to a stop is most likely caused by a clutch pack out of alignment.
I had mine replaced and it fixed the issue.
3. This is a common trait and complaint of the DSG.
I personally love the DSG but it is quirky. Good luck.
The DSG is basically a computer controlled stick shift. So basically what you experience in a stick shift, you will likely experience with the DSG. Backward rolls on hills (although hill assist should have been engaged) and non-instantaneous takeoff are all what occurs when you drive a stick.
As the above posters are trying to tell you, these appear to be normal operating conditions of the DSG gearbox.
If you are still concerned you can take it to the dealer and the tech will test-drive. We get these in all the time at our dealership. Most of the time it's just explaining that the DSG is not an automatic transmission, it's an electronically controlled manual and will not behave quite like anything else you're used to.
Sometimes, though, there are other issues which can be addressed.

Alot of the complaints of dual clutch transmission is due to slushbox drivers getting weird things occuring that might be the norm in a stick shift box, but not a slushbox. Look at Ford's new car problem reporting going way up, almost all due to them putting DCT transmission in their cars.
