I've had this car for roughly a month and a half and it has spent more time at the shop than in my possession and is scheduled to go back to the shop early next week for repair attempt number three.
While I enjoy the handling, performance and looks of the car, the problems with the DSG completely ruin this car for me. The car jumps, downshifts hard to the point where the tires lock up, rolls when it park, pops out of gear, etc. There is a known issue with the mechatronic unit, but I already had it replaced on this car and I'm still having major problems with the DSG transmission.
Very nice car...
2008 Volkswagen R32DUBLOVER - South West02/10/2010
Bought 2008(R) in 2009, Very nice car. I waited to see if I liked the car before commenting on it. Comfortable and fun ride, interiors quiet and easy to use. Stereo system is nice for stock. GPS system is ok, 09 and 10 system is alot nicer. Fuel mileage and heavy right foot really dictates a larger fuel tank needed. Interior is holding up well. Motor is very quiet, Exhaust has quite the growler noise (LOVE THAT). Exterior is clean and easy to maintain. No problems mechanically. Handling is great, Used in heat and rain area. Would recommend if looking for sporty hatchback with a PAIR!
