Newbie. Just got my first Volkswagen after being away 13 long years, with 19K m in extremely good condition. The car sounded, shifted, and drove so well. Then I took it in for P2. Now it seems to have less diesel putter, less torque, and to shift with higher "peaks and valleys" - at higher rpms with less torque below. I am disappointed and wondering - can I expect this to improve on its own? Some people here have said so. Is there another option such as above? Higher rpms max at 2000 in second - not crazy but everything just seemed so much smoother and more solid before. Also, seems to lug more up hills. S mode is better, but seems more like D used to. I like to drive slow and easy in D. I seriously doubt I will get to 120,000 before 11 years, and with decreased fuel economy, what did I gain? With decreased fuel economy what does the environment gain? Great forum/club. Thanks.The throttle response and torque limiter delete tweaks in VCDS worked wonders for my DSG behavior. I wonder if the programming includes those two tweaks?
P.S. Rogue factor - I am basing all of this on two tanks of gas - one pre P2, one almost immediately after. Shell was first tank, Thornton's second. Could this affect? I have looked around and not found mention of brand comparisons here. Fuel economy was 46 before and seems substantially less now as well. Thanks much for any help!
