Volkswagen Golf 2007 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Volkswagen Golf here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
My 2007 VW Golf has major issues, how can I get rid of it?
I would really question what you have been told, so I would get a second opinion. If it is correct and you want to get rid of your car the best way would be to trade it on another car.
VW Golf faulty gearbox
Having fielded many reports of the DSG gearbox playing up we have reservations about it. Owners have reported clunky shifting, selection of the wrong gears, even selecting neutral when you least need it. We also have a copy of a service alert to dealers about oil penetrating the gearbox wiring loom and affecting the operation of the gearbox. The alert notes the following possible problems:
. Gearbox does not change correctly and intermittently jumps between gears.
. Gearbox changes are hard and jerky.
. Gearbox jerks in overrun during a gear change.
We have also had more than one report of the gearbox going into neutral, in one case when the driver was making a right turn, leaving him exposed to oncoming traffic. It's not possible to say if a car will develop these issues or not, but you should carefully assess the operation of the gearbox when you test drive a car, and quiz the seller on any issues they have had with it.
Door locking Golf out of warranty
We haven’t had any reports of failures of the door locks you mention, but I would appeal to VW to reconsider its decision. You have reported a problem with the door lock, presumably that was while it was under warranty, so you have grounds to claim it should have been fixed under warranty.
Ask Smithy Xtra shoddy VW service
I would also feel ripped off and would be refusing to pay for it, particularly if it was done without my consent. Have the dealer justify their actions; it seems on the surface to be a case of over-servicing.
