    I'd guess it's every time you start going up an hill, or inadvertantly give it a little more gas. If going up an hill on a steady throttle the DSG sensors extra load and drops a cog to keep in the power band. Sport mode is pretty manic at times.

    You maybe right then, I don't have DSG so I couldn't confirm.

    However it does seem vey strange as you say it, Book it in as it's better being safe thn sorry with one of those boxes messing up later on in life.

    Re: DSG PROBLEMS ????

    haven't had that problem, although the 3.2 doesnm't take any notice of hills... I'd expect it to maybe be on the border of each gear change, and flicking inbetween. what revs is it changing at? not sure why you're 'cruising' in S mode either

    Yep, that sounds about right. My TDI in sport mode on a light throttle will change down at about 2400rpm, so your petrol motor will do the same a little higher. As I said S mode is mental and not for 'cruising'

    Re: DSG PROBLEMS ????

    I find 'S' mode so 'fussy' I simply ignore it.

    'D' for the missus.
    Manual for me.

    Del,forgive me if I seem pedantic with my next statement,but my dealer didn't tell me and I found this out from this forum !

    You do know manual mode is accessed by going to 'D' and then moving the stick over to the left (the +/- will then light up) ?

    I couldn't understand why,when using the paddles,it kept defaulting back to 'D' mode all the time.

    I can't believe the dealer spent half an hour telling me how to use wipers and headlights and not how to use the DSG properly....

    Ha ha ha !!!!, I didn't know about the Manual mode until early this morning when I read the manual.......DOH !!!, nobody explained this to me bowfer !!!, stupid isn't it !!!, now I figure that you aren't supposed to use Sport mode when 'cruising' on the motorway....... I thought you could only use the paddles in sport mode......... and retard of the year award goes tooooo.......Del......

    I think the retard(s) of the year award(s) should go to the respective dealerships that didn't tell us when we collected our cars Del...

    I wonder how many DSG owners are running around thinking 'D' and 'S' are the only modes available...

    Re: DSG PROBLEMS ????

    Del: not good for your running in phase!!!

    I test drove 3 DSG's at 3 dealerships, at each one they asked if I was familiar with the box before i took the vehicle.
    On my first drive i said 'no' (although i had read about all the modes) and he said he wasn't allowed to let me take it without instruction. He drove me twice round the block first and explained every mode in detail (even demo'd the launch control on a 3.2).

    Re: DSG PROBLEMS ????

    In Sport the revs are always ketp above 3000 rpm ish , so ive noticed

    so if you are crusing on a motors way at about 3000, and the revs drop, it will knock down.

    I dont use sport on a motorway, simply because of this knock down.

    its great round the city and B road blast though [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
