Hi, All.

Afraid this is not a good message...
I want to alert you all that are looking at buying a Golf TDI DSG for the problems you may find after a few years.
I bought mine back in 2004.
I wanted a practicl, reliable car and I thought I had one.
This car of mine has 115000 Km and last week it simply failled to start; it was parked indoors and according to the oficial garage I always use, the car has the following problems.

1. the starting engined had burned-out; a new one needs to be fitted;
2. the car was consuming cooling liquid and... after the review, the motor-head had a fissure, so a new one is needed;
3. worst of all, the car was doing a not loud but anoying noise; again, bad news: the noise came from the DSG gearbox, which has no means of repair or reset, a new one is needed if I want the noise to go away.

Mind you: this car had never been exposed to extreme driving situations, I've always been a excelent driver and however looks at the car thinks it is brand new, so well it has been perserved.

The above repairs will have a cost of 10000 EUR plus, which is a total waist of money.
I'm now looking at a japanese car, eventualy mazda, which seems to be 8as always) much more reliable than german ones.

Appreciate any comments from anyonw who has faced the same as I'm going through.

You are an idiot. Get out of the forum now. Because you had a handful of problems with your one volkswagen does not mean that every single volkswagen has problems. Albeit VW is not the most reliable brand on the market, but people who love these cars don't love them for their reliability. Someone needs to put you behind the wheel of a Toyota Camry so you can shutup and enjoy your boring car.

LOL...never mind Cody...he get that way. Sucks that you've had a bad experience with your VW. However, I wouldn't go so far to say that all VW's are bad. Some cars are lemons, plain and simple...no matter what manufacturer makes them.

I'd say I'm sorry but I'm not. I hate when one person tries to ruin the experience for everyone else because they had bad luck. You don't go on an enthusiast forum and try and tell everybody on there that their vehicle is garbage, you just don't. If you have no intention of positive assistance on this forum them please perform the action demonstrated in the aforementioned animation.

Sounds like your car was never serviced properly i have a 2011 2.0TDI 140bhp Golf DSG and the Gearbox oil needs changing every 60000km and im sure if the engine oil gets changed at the right intervals it helps my dealer didnt change the oil in my DSG Caddy until a mate noticed in the service manual it needed to be changed was 8thou over nearly crap builds up in the filter etc bits of metal n all that so if ya hav a DSG Car new or 2nd hand make sure its serviced right
