Volkswagen Golf 2005 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Volkswagen Golf here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Replace Golf transmission for $7k?

    No, it's not. I would be looking to have the transmission rebuilt rather than replaced, but if it has to be replaced I would be looking to do it with a used gearbox instead of a new one.

  • Hard yards

    Softer brake materials are coming to all cars, which is why Bendix developed its Euro+ pads. You're right about driving style having a huge influence on brake wear.

  • Golf DSG gearbox

    Oil contamination of the wiring loom is a common problem with the DSG gearbox, one that VW is well aware of, but I'm guessing that the dealer has guessed at the cause of the problem and arrived at the wrong conclusion. I would refuse to pay for the work done in arriving at that diagnosis. Why should you pay for their incompetence? With respect to the gearbox itself, I would ask VW to cover the costs. They will possibly make you an offer of part payment, it's then up to you to accept or reject it. You are correct in believing the gearbox should last more than 71,000 km, but from the evidence we have it doesn't seem to. Your case should be a warning to anyone considering buying a VW with the DSG gearbox.

  • Golf fixed

    That's a lot less than the VW dealer quoted you, and speaks volumes for the value of independent mechanics.
