Hoping for some help here. I have a 2018 T6 7-speed DSG and the mechatronic unit has failed after breakdown at about 25,000 miles. Out of warranty with VW and have been quoted 3k for replacement, oils and labour. Inchcape VW Manchester already requested a contribution from VW which was rejected. I have read about similar situations and VW offered 50% contributions.

Would you take a hit on the 3k with VW or look towards a local mechanic? If so, can anybody suggest somebody in the Manchester area that specialises in DSG repair and would be capable?

Cheers.

IF (a big IF) the vehicle was purchased from a VW dealer and ALL the servicing is up to date and done at a VW dealer then they MAY contribute some "goodwill" if you give them some grief and threaten to buy a Transit next time. The price is about right, the unit itself is typically £2367.19 inc VAT. If we were doing it we would insist on a genuine unit or turn the work away, most of these repair companies are useless.
