  • Volkswagen Polo 2012: Car won't reverse

    It’s a dual-clutch transmission, which raises the question of a problem with the transmission or the electronics that control it. Have a dealer or an automatic transmission mechanic assess it for you.

  • Volkswagen Polo 2012: Gearbox failed

    It’s not a common fault. Given that your car has only done 94,000 km I would suggest you contact VW to see if they might come to the party with at least part of the cost of repairs as a gesture of good will.

  • VW dual-glutch gearbox

    VW was certainly an early adopter of the dual-clutch gearbox, and  they have had quite a deal of trouble with it in other models where they've used it. There are certainly a lot of frustrated VW owners out there who have experienced problems with the DSG gearbox. My opinion is that it is not trouble free at this point and I would not buy one myself. I would prefer a conventional manual gearbox; it's simple, proven and reliable. The only issue is that because manuals are on the way out they are not getting much attention from carmakers.
