Dsg 7 speed issue

Post by Antonio86 »

Hi everyone
I just bought a polo gti 2016 dsg 7speed.
I find the manual modo very hard when shift gears.
I heard is a common problem of this transmission.
Anyone has the same problem?
Any solution?
Thank you very much

I’ve never had that problem and know nobody who has.

I’m assuming that in manual mode you lift off the throttle when shifting gear. There is an automatic virtual lift off but it does not give the smoothest change so pretend you are driving a conventional car and feather the throttle, it should give gear changes that won’t wake up granny sitting in the back.
