    Thread: GTI DSG Holds gears 1-4 until engine is warm?

      As the title says, I noticed this this morning. I've only had the car for a few days, so it may just be me to used to it yet, but after getting up to speed (50 MPH) the DSG will hold in 4th or 5th at about 2800-3000 RPM. Ideally if I'm cruising at that point, I'd like it to just stay in 6th. I can manually upshift to sixth, but the car downshifts by itself after a few seconds. So far I've only noticed this after a cold start...

      You shouldn't go above 3k rpm's until the engine is at operating temp. (190-200 degrees).

      I don't even move the car until the idle is set at around 7-800 rpm's unless I have to go.
