    1. Hi,
      Thanks for the info, but this does not seem to be the same issue, as it is on a different gearbox.

      DSG/S-tronic are dual clutch gearboxes with fixed number of gears, 6 or 7. While CVT (from article) is Continuos Variable Transmission, and means that it does not have fixed number of gears.

  1. The issue is not identical, however, the problems are similar both with the gearbox being problematic and the handling of the car, as well as the ‘software update solution’ and the compensatory warranty which has been offered as a ‘fix’ in some markets.

    1. Just wanted to point out the differences, as many people do not know the difference between different DSG gearboxes.
