In the clutches

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Ask Smithy -

I have had prob­lems with the gear­box in my 2010VWGolf 90TSI DSG, which I bought new. No fault was found the first two oc­ca­sions I took it back to the dealer but on the third time the multi-plate was re­placed. There was also an up­date, which we were later told by an­other dealer that it was car­ried out cor­rectly. We have now been in­formed that the clutch plate needs re­plac­ing. The war­ranty ex­pires in Au­gust and were con­cerned about what would hap­pen if it hap­pens again af­ter ex­piry.

Dennis Mole, email The clutch is­sue you have ex­pe­ri­enced (twice) is a com­mon one with the DSG and the re­place­ment clutch that is to be fit­ted should be cov­ered by war­ranty. In other coun­tries, trou­ble with the DSG has ledVWto ex­tend the war­ranty on it to 10 years. Ap­proachVWand re­quest a free ex­tended war­ranty.
