    Beetle DSG reliability

    Hi folks, first timer on here, have had a couple of Beetles before, an old 1303 model back in the day and a few years ago had a 2ltr petrol automatic.

    Well this Wednesday am about to take delivery of a 2012 1.2 DSG auto, it has around 54 thousand on the clock, regularly serviced and comes with a two year warranty, am getting a wee bit concerned though re the gearbox reliability, also have read in other places that the gearbox oil and filter should be changed at around 40 thousand miles, have had a look at a YouTube video how this is done, looks a bit of a ball ache to do re filling it up via the drain plug.
    Anyone any thoughts on the above, thanks.

    By the way look forwards to contributing in the future.

    First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

    is that a 6 speed DSG or 7 speed DSG?

    Aye, your right enough, I jumped the gun there, have posted in the New Members section now, I am sure it says 7 speed in the blurb for the car.
