    Well, Ford dumped its similar (and equally problematic) 7 speed dry clutch trans for a conventional torque converter auto in the updated Focus. Not a random act; seems they conceded it doesn't cut it.

    It has not worsened to date but i think i should have it dealt with before the warranty runs out.

    It is a work car so I do around 35k a year in it.

    The shudder:
    Seems to always occur at very low revs and when engine is under load. -particularly a cold engine
    Example: Slowly reversing out of my driveway on an incline.
    Slowly accelerating away from a stop on an incline.

    I generally drive with zest so the shudder is rarely felt. Seems like when you use the semi-auto mode everything is fine and dandy.

    What is far more annoying than the shudder is the rattle from the wastegate clip. I had it fixed at 30k nut it returned at 60k. Need to fix it again at next service which is in a week.

    a new clutch every 30k is a joke.
    just out of curiosity - do you do a lot of city driving? lots of traffic?
    do you baby it?

    Golf mk 7 dsg transmission shudder

    Hi guys,

    I was driving in stop start traffic last night and I started to realise my transmission started to run rough. I could hear a crunching sound whilst running through the gears and it seemed like every gear change was accompanied by relatively violent banging sound. Reverse gear seems the worst and at one stage stopped engaging.

    Has anyone ever had this issue before? I am hoping someone could shed some light on whether this is similar to any problems that affected the mk6 dsg a few years ago.

    How many issues with MK7 DSG's and clutches ???

    I know there are many threads here about DSG's and clutches on the MK7.
    My MK7 has had three clutches and it's second gearbox recently in 2.5 years.
    A mates Passat had his 3 yo old out of warranty DSG gearbox replaced.
    Another mate with a MK6 has "shudder" on the clutch take up position (in a manual it would be like a worn thrust bearing)
    So he will be up for a VERY expensive clutch repair shortly.
    His wife also bought a MK 7 same time and dealer as me and I have just found out that DSG had major work done to get fluid affected wiring in the DSG repaired.
    It would be foolish to think that VW had NOT got an ongoing DSG issue !!!
    It would be twice as foolish to think they might tell the truth about it either - thinking back to the diesel scam.
    Who else has issues ???

    I just started a post on DSG and clutch issues. You can just join the long list of MK7 DSG failures.

    I knew about those threads my friend, I started some - however it's time all those threads came under 1 banner and that is
    VW DSG's have a problem - even the MK7's.
