Guys am considering getting a passat 1.8. Can any owners here comment the experience with this variant? May I know what's the typical servicing costs per 15000km? There's really no topic about the costs here?

DSG stands for Direct Shift Gearbox. It's a type of gearbox design that uses dual clutch technology to engage the gears.

http://en.wikipedia....t-Shift_Gearbox

The gear engagement is almost "instant" and this promises better performance. However, there has been issues with DSG. Just do a search online and you will find those problems.

Some references on the DSG issues:

Stay away from the infamous 7 Speed Dry Clutch DSG... If die die you are looking for a large sedan from VAG, give a serious consideration to the cheaper and better spec Superb 2.0 TSI with 6 Speed Wet Clutch DSG.
