Hi

Been contemplating getting a VW jetta but quite concerned about how serious the 7 speed DSG problem is. I would say its the only thing stopping me now. VW sales guy said its those ppl who mod (chip) the car. But what i heard from others is even not chipped also have problem. Every 1 or 2 month have to visit workshop. And their after sales is not fantastic either.

Anyone here can share?

Cos it's afterall an entry level conti with low road tax and FC, but still can out gun any 1.6/1.8 liter jap car. Am referring to the 1.4 rocs and golfs, and those are the ones with the said 7 speeder DSG.

Marketing lor. LOL!

Those in the market for a used VW, avoid those cars from 2008-2010.

2011 I don't know, may be owners would like to report their problems todate.

Jetta also has the 7 speed DSG.

Actually dats the main reason why i m tempted to change to VW - the performance to price ratio is quite high. Although the interior quite sucks but how else to get 160/240 below $130k (latest price for jetta sport is $128k)? But why would ppl buy a car with (serious) reliability issue?

That would be the bulk of the cars i would be looking at. No point to buy a 2007 car - too old already. My own car now is a 2010. I wouldn't want to change to an older car since part of the intention to change to to pre-empt the expected rise in COE next year when quota is further reduced.

Get a FD2R or WRX lor..I thought those are more bang for buck. But of course, with better reliability comes higher roadtax, insurance and FC.

Not suitable image for me.

I actually considered swapping my 1.6 Koup to 2.0 (6speed) koup. Choose same colour as current one, transfer my stuff over and my family won't realise i changed car!

Get a Skoda Octavia VRS or Superb 2.0T. You get essentially a VW, with a 20% discount and 6 Spd DSG + all the bells and whistles.

I like leh.. I am Japanese car fanboy.

But recently drop by VW showroom look see..all the 1.4 models so tempting. Can be sleeper car, but reading all the reliability/aftersales issues make me apprehensive.

Hmm. I wouldn't do that..last time I felt my 1.6 Koup was let down by the weight of the car, I don't think the 2.0 will be any better in terms of performance, plus the resale of a 2.0 Koup isn't much higher than the 1.6.

I guess if you have the budget for VW, there are certainly many options you can consider out there. wub.gif
