Yeah it is 4 years and 2 months old so no warranty seems a common problem and apparently the mechatronic fault tends to occur between 30 and 40 thousand miles so feeling less enthusiastic towards seat today just glad new ateca will come with a manual so i wont be worrying about it

:(

A lot of the google results relate to old technology - not all but a large proportion

I believe you have to make sure you do have DSG box oil change on plan and correct types of oil used too

I'm not sure if that is followed what % more failure you get than on a manual box though

I had an old golf with DSG that had over 100k on clock with no issue

Non of that helps you though :(

What a pants position to be in

This is one that would be debated like gap is - do you take Gap insurance, do you extend warranty to 5 year etc etc

Sometimes damned if you do and damned if you don't

Have £3000 finance left on it and it is worth around £6000 till it broke genuinely consider scrappping it and taking the hit reather than fixing it my father had a passat dsg with his he ended up around £5000 at vw garage same thing around 4yr old no warranty and it was a fault with the dsg

The DSG7 on the 1.4tsi 2WD is a dry clutch version and is sealed for life and maintenance free, so no oil change. It's the same with the cam belt - no change required at any point.

As far as I know all the other variants are wet clutch and require an oil change.

Welcome back by the way ;) ;)
