Hi there, I have a customer that has a 2007 Audi A3 Sportback DSG 2.0TDI 170BHP and when I drove it the DSG box seemed to snatch in and out of drive very harshly. The gears change fine when on the move but when manoeuvring forwards or in reverse it seems to dump the clutch in and out severely with only slight pressure on the accelerator. It's sometimes so severe that it 'bangs' in to drive but is always noticeable to me.
I have myself a 2005 2.0 TDI 140 BHP with DSG and even though i get the usual DSG delays sometimes it's nothing comparing to this. I was wondering if this is because the car is an '07 and 170 BHP as it seems to go through the gears more quickly than mine and stays higher up the rev range while also changing more instantly.
I know they do have issues with the mechatronics unit, and this one has had a replacement after 11K miles by VW (now on 63K), which is why I have a spare for mine!
Any information will be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
