2013 VW golf TDI with tech package
Is there any year model, trim package, etc that i should avoid when trying to purchase?

I'm looking at buying maybe a 2013 sporstwagen. Is there a certain transmission i should avoid? i really don't know much about these newer TDI's. Been driving a 2000 Golf and a 2002 Beetle. both have over 300K. just looking to get another TDI and would love your advice or warning, if there is any!

thanks

I don't own a Sportwagon, but from what I read on this Forum, avoid the ones with the large sunroofs (creak, noise makers, and have drain tube leaks).

Either the manual transmission for the DCT automatic are fine. The DCT does require a regular 40K mile service (fluid replacement), and there are some threads in the Forum concerning solenoid replacement.
