DSG is lyk my nou die nuwe automaties en ons nuwe moter gaan dit nou h. Los ek die ding laat dit self besluit of ry jy maar 'handrat' en stop by 5de op 'n 6 spoed kas terwyl jy sleep? Enige iemand al moailikheid gehad a.g.v die auto kas en sleep? Dis 'n VW 2.0TDI Caddy Maxi met die 6 spoed DSG. Net omdat ek nie 'n kombi kan bekostig nie. My huidige VW Maxi 1.9TDi het 'n goeie werk gedoen met die slepery maar dit is 'n 5 spoed handrat. Groetnis. Morne.

Hi Morne, very nice vehicle you are getting. All you need to do is put it into automatic and let it do it's own thing. I have been towing a Gypsey Rhapsody ( GVM of 1275 kgs) with my VW Passat 2.0 TDI with the DSG 6speed gearbox for 2 years and I always tow in automatic mode - never had any problems. The gearbox is very strong and I just love it. The gearbox will never labour itself or the engine. This is one gearbox that VW have REALLY got right.. Reply back if you need to know anything else. Enjoy your new automatic ! Regards, Cowen.

Thanks for the reply Cowen. Biggest thing now is waiting for the car. Delivery mid May only. We are looking forward the the auto though. City traffic is a slump. Is your's also the 103KW/320NM engine?

Hi Morne, yes it is the same engine - plenty of power and such a pleasure to drive in busy traffic. You have to be carefull when towing because the car hardly feels like it is towing anything and gets up to speed very quickly! It is easy to forget that you are towing something. Fuel consumption is excellent as well. Mine gets 5,4 L/100 km on the open road solo and towing is 9-10 L/100 km. Town driving with lots of stop and go is between 6.7 to 8 L/100 kms. Regards, Cowen.
