Review Comments

Juddering in high speed braking. Started from 10,000 kms onwards. Replaced rotors, dis not give warranty. Total cost was around 7.5k. The problem reappeared after 10k kms and persisting. Am used to that now. 


Another issue is with steering rack. Some clunky noise can be heard from the steering column on passing through potholes. Service advisor told its very mild and common issues with all VW. I insisted to change it under warranty for which the car has to be there for 2 days at least, which I rejected as its my daily drive.


These are all minor issues and quiet common in VW cars. Overall am very happy. 


But the one thing am worried is about the DSG reliability. Especially Since am from Kerala and the roads are not good. It’s meant for highways. In bad roads and in slow speeds gearbox is extremely confused and gear hunting occurs which makes the driver uncomfortable makes us worry about wear and tear caused due to frequent gear shifting.
