Interesting to read confirmation that this problem is common to many VAG models using the 7 speed dual clutch gearboxes including the A3. I hope the 8 speed box proves to be more reliable.
Quote 384181 vehicles were recalled to replace defective gearboxes that may result in the loss of acceleration. Models include the Golf Magotan Sagitar and audi A3 Chinas quality inspector said on its website. A.n.other audi owners have reported problems with their dual clutch gearboxes (S tronic in audi speak) - including the Q5. See here httpwww.myaudiq5....tronic-failure
Have to agree with Kaine here..........Really looking forward to seeing how the engines and gearboxes pan out. Having had a couple of 2.0tdi audis Im looking forward to a smoother 2.7 or 3.0 with an entertaining and involving DSG box.... All depends on the final price I really hope they dont push the price to high I dont mind paying a premium over the A4 but if we get into the high 30s then we are
I&39m just about to order my Q5 (hopefully today ) and for sure Hold Assist is not available for manual gearboxes. For electric tailgate yes you can close it manually just using a bit of force. It will not harm the motor as there is kind of &39clutch&39 installed between the door and the motor. BTW it is described in manual that you can do this manually in certain situations - reposition programmed
WARNING Do not touch anything on the gearbox if the S-tronic. Oil change procedure is complicated and must be done at an authorized service otherwise you can permanently damaged gearboxes S-tronic uses two different oils 7l and 4.5 l
Hi Shep With regard to your query about manufacturing problems..... I vaguely remember someone saying there was a problem with the supply of S-tronic DSG gearboxes. I also heard that audi kept the run of panoramic roofs together for ease of production. I wish i could remember where i got this info from but i honestly cant recall. It might have been the salesman or possiby even in a forum somewhere
missile on 11 February 2014 - 0230 PM said My advanced driving instructor cautioned against using change down to brake. ......................... New pads are cheaper than a new gearbox I pay for pads audi pays for gearboxes... And on my manuals as I rev-match there is minimal load on the box. I do agree though slamming it in 2nd at 50mph is not going to make for a happy box...
Ok I accept any criticism. My English is bad and many times I have written here Sorry for my English With my native language I speak two other languages and very bad English as third language Clutch cylinder only exists for manual gearboxes Here attached S-TRONIK gearbox in PDF form with all the parts and there is no clutch cylinder Attached File(s)   S-tronic par.pdf (588.49K) Number of downloads 11
Quote VW DSG boxes and S-tronic- audi transmission is not the same It is true that the DSG had problems but not S-tronic . As has been reported on this and other forums there have been problems with S Tronic gearboxes.
Of course payments go to immediately if you have S-tronic with clutch cylinder clutch slave cylinder exists for manual gearboxes For a smart man this is enough Attached File Post 18 PS Hydraulic cylinder has the same working principle everywhere in the world (brakes gearboxes machines in mines wheel loaders - dumpers elevators cranes ... etc.)
OK unbeknown to me this problem of slow take off from rest with DSG gearboxes seems to be a well know issue and has been discussed in the past on the Honest John Forum httpwww.honestjoh...dex.htmt82246 I tried driving the car in Sport Mode last night and the pick up is definitely quicker. Having driven nothing but MB products with TC gearboxes for the past 16 years the DSG certainly does take some
Email from theage and smh FYI Hello everyone Again apologies for the mass emailing. I really wanted to get back to you all individually but I just dont have the time. Obviously you would have seen the Volkswagen recall. Heres our story from today on the recall in case you havent caught up with the news. httpsmh.drive.com.aumotor-newsv...612-2o4ke.html And here is a good Q&A that Drive did if you need
igram on 19 October 2011 - 0854 PM said I know that the new auto on the 2.0TFSI is a tiptronic - but I have no idea what the difference is (apart from 1 more gear). I have had a tiptronic A6 for a few years and it does exactly the same - no noticeable difference or operational requirement The difference is a large S-tronic is a sporty and fast transmission It is best to test himself to feel the difference.

Thanks for the reply Jose and the lesson must admit dont know a lot about engines or gearboxes. Ill keep monitoring it for the moment but it def felt not right. When it did go into 8th it went in with a bit of a lurch and this isnt the first time Im wondering what it will be like when we really have some cold weather.
