No problems, noticed and expect common "hesitation" for clutches to engage when starting from stop. As long as it remains reliable, I'm a happy camper. Also noticed occassionally that when decel to stop, clutches must not disengage fast enough making slight rough feel from engine.

Default DSG question

I just took my car in for the 40,000 mile service. When I went back to pick it up I noticed that they did not charge me for the DSG fluid change. I went to ask the mechanic about it and he said it only gets done at 100, 000 according to his schooling for the Audi's. I showed him the book and he was puzzled. he checked with VW and they so much as told him to just check the condition of the fluid and only change it if it looked dirty. So he is going to check it next week. I ask if this was going to cause my warranty to be voided if the tranny went south and he said they said no. This has been recorded in the service record they keep so I have proof.

If anyone out there can get their hands on an Audi handbook for one with a DSG I would love to hear what is say the service interval is.

I will keep you posted as to the outcome of the fluid test.

I have the Audi Self-Study Guide for the DSG and it specifies 40,000 mile service intervals. My owner's manual and my Bentley manual both say every 40,000 miles a fluid and filter change must be done on the DSG. I don't care what they've recorded in your service record, I would have them change it anyway because every piece of literature I've seen on the DSG says 40,000 miles = fluid/filter change.

Perhaps VW has revised its service schedule for the DSG because of all the copmlaints of high maintenance costs for the DSG??
