    Mother has a TDI auto and has had it for about 6 months - all fine so far.

    I had a 52-plate (B6) 2.4SE multitronic, built before the upgrade to the 7-plate clutch set up. I had it for four years, during which I took the mileage from 54,000 to 87,000. I made sure the gearbox oil had been changed before I got it (it had) and I had a further oil change done whilst I had it (a wee bit early, at 72,000 miles). I also regular cleaned the torque sensors. Nothing broke on it all the time I had it.

    Maintenance is everything with these. The oil change every 40,000 miles is as essential as it possible to be.

    2005-06 2.0tsline gearbox ECU went at 40k odd, it had the 7 plate clutch. I had the TMF changed and new ECU put on £1300 but drives perfectly now. This is the 1st and last auto i'm buying thats for sure.
