What is this all about?

Well, in November 2010, I bought a brand new Volkswagen Touran (model 2011). Not long time after I bought the car, I started noticing the strange behaviour when it would shift gears. This was my first DSG car, manual transmission with automatic gear changing; So I didn’t know what to expect and it was snowy so I contributed the behaviour to slippery surface.

Machatronic unit replacement

While I had the car for replacement of dual clutches, dealership where I bought the car, called me in and says that they were given green light to replace mechatronic unit on my car. So now the mechatronic is being replaced as well. There is not much else, left in regard to gearbox to be replaced. Problem is still there. Jerky/shaky and uneven gear shifting.

Complaint (3) Noise is back

So, the noise is back, although very settle, but it’s there nonetheless. Went to dealership to let them know, about it. And they were puzzled. They did some diagnostics, but no errors showed up. They decided to update software in mechatronic unit and in the engine/on-board computer. Not much changed. But told me that they have seen the problem before, and that flywheel replacement helped.
