In China and US Volkswagen issues prolonged warranty on DSG gearbox…

I just read an article on Malaysian website (CBT) regarding problems with Volkswagen DSG7 gearboxes in China, from June 2012. Volkswagen has offered to prolong warranty on all their models with DSG7 in China, to 10 years or 160.000 km. The same thing has happened in 2009 for US customers. See document here. But I guess Europeans are not that lucky…

Article is especially interesting, as it mentions all those things I have been having with my car. So it is regarded as fault in the US and China, but Volkswagen Denmark and Volkswagen AG claims that this is “serial production standard”… But they still refuse to give me an official document stating this. So, no official acknowledgment, just excuses and coverups.
