Are you saying that if the DSG box doesnt have issues early in life it wont have issues later?? i would have thought the likelyhood of problems increases with mileage...Not particularly Damian.
We're going to be looking at having kids at some point in the future, so I want an estate to be able to carry prams and stuff. The bora's boot, although quite big, has such a limited access.
Plus, I miss having the ability to be able to carry big things like wardrobes if moving house etc.
It would be a 2nd hand car, so if it was DSG, it would hopefully be past the point where the box has issues too
But rich said this tooI cant beleive that all DSG gearboxes are affected though, only a small number. Surely there would have been outrage if all of them broke?
No. I wasn't saying that if they didn't have the issue early on that they wouldn't have the problem, but as you said above, it's normally up to about 60k or early on.
Plus, on the DSG Woes site, you can get a replacement if you have a warrenty from warrenty direct, which is a cheap alternative.
hmm i kinda see your point, if its going to fail it should have failed by the time you get it but ive heard of a few people running into problems with their 2nd box, after a replacement!Usually the DSG fails early on the the cars life, so that shouldn't really be an issue! Test drive them both, you might hate the dsg in a diesel!
