  2. Golf 7 (type 5G) 2012 - 17
    Hi everyone, First post so not sure if it’s in the correct place. I’ve just purchased a 2013 Golf GTI automatic with DSG gearbox. For some reason the car has been stalling, noticed in a few weeks ago but didn’t think much of it as it wasn’t so often. Now it seems to be a bit more frequent. The...
  3. Polo 5 - (type 6C) 2014 - 2018
    My girlfriend is looking to buy a new (used) supermini type car soon. Fiesta, Polo, Corsa, etc. I've tried to persuade her to buy a big German car with a 6 cylinder engine, but she's unmoved. She wants a small car that's easy to park and to manoeuvre around busy streets (lives on the edge of...

    Hi, I recently purchased my VW Golf Mk6 2010 which has the 7-Speed Dry Clutch DQ200 DSG gearbox. I've done some research and have read many forums on this particular DSG gearbox and learnt it appears to be very problematic, with serious and very expensive mechanical issues being inevitable...

  9. VW Engine and Gearbox
    Hi all, I am hoping for some advice. Due to the issues that the DSG boxes have, I am considering swapping out my Golf for a new car - using it to do a straight swap for another car, possibly not a VW. The car was given to me 3 years ago after a relative passed away. Other than servicing (and...

    Hi All, I'm buying a new 2018 T-Roc 1.5 SE petrol DSG. I didn't like the way the manual drove for the same reasons many others have reported (stalling, kangarooing,overrun). Its a complex new engine and when you research the 'Budack cycle' and 'two cylinder mode' I'm not surprised there are...

  16. VW Engine and Gearbox
    Hi All! I've noticed that my gear changes are taking slightly more revs (2000) from 2 to 3 and then 3 to 4. This never used to be the case? For example I could easily reach 3rd gear without any high revving of the car. Furthermore I have noticed dropping from 3rd to 2nd gear occasional...
