Picked up an 06 DSG GTi for my kid. Has and abrupt take off and slow down bucking issue and can be felt in the low gears. PO was forthcoming and his Tex posts reflect this issue going on for several years. Said in colder months it goes away.
There are no transmission codes present. No limp mode ever noted.
I reset the DSG adaptation with no change
I previously owned an 06 GLI with DSG so I am somewhat familiar with the transmission characteristics.
I have been researching possible causes/solutions.
A new mech for the car is about $1200 from DAP.
A new DMF and or stock clutch packs are available from several of the Tex Vendors as well
Research so far has found several overseas re-manufacturer's for the mechs
Can't seem to find any USA counterparts.
Not sure that I would go the DIY rebuild from an Ebay.
Without definitive codes in the TCM, I hate to just pour money at the problem in hopes that it will fix it.
Are there any good US suppliers/service companies out there?
