Hello fellow Vortex people!
Today I looked at a used 2009 Eos Lux with the ~200hp TSI engine from a private party. It only has 30k miles on it from a single owner. I spent about 45 minutes with the car, including 30 minutes on the road & highway, and made the observation that there is a certain jerkiness to the transmission when moving the car from a complete standstill. There's a noticeable jolt right before the car starts moving, every single time.
I have since perused plenty of threads here concerning known issues with the DSG transmission in the pre-2010 years, and came to understand that most dealers would say this is normal, whereas plenty of owners find it rather annoying.
But is it normal, really? I don't want to buy a car if the transmission is likely to blow out in a year or two.
Appreciate any thoughts/advise on any of the above.
