Quote from: Naekyr on March 04, 2020, 09:03:08 AMyeah what the fook, why no 6 speed recall - these things are deathtraps too.I've encountered a situation once or twice where I'm trying to pull away in traffic and the clutch doesn't take or something, resulting in the engine just revving for a couple second before the car gets a move on - seems very dangerous to me! These days I wait for extra big gaps just in case the gearbox decides to crap itself again. When you can't trust that pressing the accelerator will make the car accelerate then how is that safe!??
Quote from: Brett on March 04, 2020, 09:23:09 PMOut of interest, how many km?s has that car done?
Quote from: Naekyr on March 05, 2020, 04:58:41 PM60k km, dsg serviced at 48k kmI've had it scanned twice, test driven 3 times by various mechanics including from VW dealership. They all insist its driving normal... still sounds dangerous to me.
Quote from: Brett on March 06, 2020, 12:00:00 PMDid it start happening after the dsg service? Potentially not enough oil put in or a dsg calibration procedure may help
Quote from: McDoof on March 09, 2020, 09:28:02 AMMine started playing up after a DSG service. I've done the adaptation procedure twice since then, but keeps getting worse. Going to try and check the fluid level this week.
