    Mine has been fine so far as well. A little jerky from 1st to 2nd on a cold morning under slow acceleration & reversing up a slope tapping the accelerator. I understand this to be normal on a DSG.

    I have the reverse, my gearbox holds 1st for too long, then slurs/slips the gear changes (1st-2nd and a bit 2nd-3rd) most of the time. Canít be good for the clutches.

    My one chatters alot too.. no where near what the old golf r one did. I think the clutch packs are ok but the mechatronics unit must be recycled ones from the mk6s.

The local dealer has been good and the mechatronics and transmission were apparently changed... but the exact same issue persists. It is so bad that we have decided to change the car. VW have denied any further responsibility for the problem saying it is a characteristic. In every other way the Tig is a perfect car, practical, good looking, fantastic features but it has been an extremely frustrating ownership experience.

    My next step is an independent engineer report and fair trading. I think the case will be strong as I have driven 2 other Tiguan 162 cars and the gearshifts were silent and smooth.
    The same here with my Wife's UK Tiguan R-Line 190 DSG. She is at the moment embroiled in a legal dispute with VW which has been ongoing since December 2017. The legal battle continues!

I am going to sell my car and never purchase a VW again. This is my 3rd Tiguan, never again. We should be entitled to a full refund under Consumer law which i will pursue if noise occurs after an apparent flywheel replacement.. what a joke..good luck.. VW are a disgrace to the motor industry.
    Partially agree with your statement. However, not ALL DSG Tiguans exibit the noise issue, hence the reason so many owners are complaining. The DSG noise issue is known to exist across the world markets and VW know it is a inherent DSG defect but have declined to confirm why the noise issue exists on some vehicles and not others. VW are determined to avoid costly recalls or compensation claims by hiding behind the commonly used phrase "Characteristic"!!

    Do some research on Google and YouTube and you will discover how many owners have the DQ500 DSG noise problem!

    I wish I had seen this thread a few months ago....I am another (now former) 162tsi owner. Within first 3000kms (amongst a range of other warranty issues) I had major dsg problems- all sorts of clunks, grinds and noises. VW wiped their hands of it- originally admitted there were issues but when they couldn't fix it after multiple attempts they backtracked and kept saying its "normal characteristics", so many visits to the service centre and false promises. Have just disposed of the car- happiest day of my life. My first and last VW.

    It appears that the noise problem in Europe has gained momentum now there are decent numbers of Tiguan's and Skoda Kodiaks out in the field.

    How much longer can VW deny a problem exists with their DQ500 DSG as fitted to the aforementioned vehicles?

    According to the links below the DSG noise has been recognised and aparently service bulletins issued relating to software updates and gearbox mounts but those who have had software updates and gearbox mounts replaced have reported zero or minimal satisfaction.

    It is obvious to see that VW are doing nothing to address customer concerns but clearly attempting to avoid costly warranty costs relating to this debacle!
