No problems with the DSG except for adapting driving to the characteristics of DSG; takeoff delay in particular
Update 3/08 (45k miles): Slight vibration at idle and takeoff; felt like a missing cylinder. Dealer says it's the dual-mass flywheel, which is now being replaced... The new DMF solved the vibration problem entirely. I'm not sure what DMF part (number) they installed.

Update 4/16 (188k miles): I did the DSG service at 80k, assuming the dealer did it at 45k when they replaced the flywheel. The fluid that came out looked as clean and clear as what went in. I didn't touch it again until 188k. This time, the fluid was noticeably darker, but still not opaque. I also replaced the flywheel (2nd replacement). After the adaptation, shifts feel crisp, quick, and as good as new.

Aside from being the most fun auto, this is the best auto transmission technology available today both in terms of efficiency and performance.

Question Please Excuse My Ignorance

What problems are the DSG transmissions having?
What should I be looking or listening for?

No problems, runs like a dream!

Update 10/30/06: just had my first oil change, not as pricey as I thought it would be! I occasionally get the slight shuddering that people have mentioned when coming to a stop, but nothing bad happens. Used the manual shift going up and down the Blue Ridge Parkway this weekend, worked GREAT!

No problems so far. I regularly use each of the three modes (Drive, Sport and Tiptronic) and I'm roughly following DriveByWire's break-in procedure. I noticed some clutch slippage in first and second gear during the first few weeks, but this has gone away (I was probably just gunning it too hard).

I use all three modes, but mostly just "D". I use the tiptronic once in a while when I need to downshift to a stop, coming down from a high speed. I use "S" once in a while to get the revs up, but not used very often. I love all three modes and think it's a great piece of engineering.
