So I've been eyeing a metallic brown sportwagen. I found 2 the same price, same trim same color. Both 2012. Auto has 104k manual has 139k. I think only difference is manual has the sky roof. Is the auto really such a monster? I'm reading basically people act like it's not if it fails its when. I've had some experience with DDC transmissions with fiat. The Mitsubishi ones were horrible. The launch from a stop delay was sad. Are these that way? I'd really like to stop shifting gears even tho I know the manual gets better mpg. If I get one I have intentions to delete down the road if that makes a difference. Why is the regular service so expensive? Fluid price or dealer service labor rate? I could buy vw fluid and do it myself as long as there's nothing special. How do the clutches hold up? Do I need any special software to work on them or relearn clutch kiss point when it finally wears out? I've got a 19 snap on solus with all 3 car lines domestic, Asian and euro. Wonder if it could do relearns as needed if problems arise?
