Not necessarily. The only thing that we can conclude is that VW has decided to change the fluid change interval for the 7 speed.I was just looking at the owners manual. We know the GTI DSG has to be serviced @40k miles. But it says the Golf Rs DSG service is 80k miles. Is the 7spd DSG more stout?
My girlfriend never got the shifter cable bushing recall done on her Fusion and it bit us in the ass while we were rushing around for last minute stuff for new years eve party. Backed the car into the parking spot and threw it in park, took my foot off the brake and the car kept going backwards even though it had every indicator telling me it was in park. Put the parking brake on and shifted the trans under the hood into park. That was a fun afternoon. It was then that I found out Target does not carry zip ties and I was reminded why I never shop at Target. I bought some picture wire and tied the cable to the trans to get it through til I had time to replace the bushing. She was lucky I was there because if that happened to her driving to work she would have not known what to doWhat's interesting is that it's at 90k now. Other than some recalls and a rear door that wouldn't open at like 20k needing a door panel replacement it has had zero issues. For a supposedly unreliable turd it's been rock solid. First year model too (2013)! We have THREE first year model cars in our house. Masochist much? lol.
