    DSG or S-Tronic Warranty

    Have they extended the warranty on the DSG gearboxes?

    Reason i ask is that i have an issue with my gearbox and i don't want to be spending money on it if it has a warranty.

    Thank you

    Darren

    doubt it - just take out an audi extended warranty when the car turns 3 years old, it covers everything the factory warranty does.

    When researching before buying my wife's Tiguan (DSG / 4 Motion), I remember reading that the dry 7 speed auto was getting some bad press and the VW China extended the warranty to 10 years (not sure if it made it to any other parts of the world or if it extended beyond the 7 speed 'cheap seats' version of DSG.

    No they wont extend this in the UK... I have been to hell and back with Audi UK and Audi Germany... it is up to Audi UK at their discretion if they want to offer such a gesture as other countries do but Audi UK outright refuse... I don't see why UK owners should be any different... may be a class action law suit would give us the rights we so deserve?!

    Other countries also offer good will on the following parts (10 years, 100,000 miles): high pressure fuel pump, pcv and there was one more thing... in my other thread.

    The best Audi could possibly do is... if you have been a loyal customer and maintained your vehicle through an Audi main dealer... then there is a possibility for them to consider a contribution toward the repair costs... but again this is entirely at their discretion.

    I had a mate who's multitronic box failed catastrophically on his A4 who had a good relationship with his local Audi dealer and got a free replacement box but had to pay the labour costs, only 1800 quid! It was at least 4 years old.
