Sunday, July 29, 2012, my husband, Richard, and I were sitting in traffic in Minneapolis, Minnesota and the light turned green, traffic moved and when he pressed on the accelerator the engine sped up as if the transmission were in neutral. The shift selector was in â€œDâ€ for drive. The PRNDL indicator on the dash flashed red with all five letters illuminated. Richard tried turning off the ignition and turning it back on and got the same results. He pushed the car to the side of the road and tried the ignition again with the same results. Then three guys (passerbys) helped push the car into an Arbyâ€™s parking lot. He tried the ignition again and the transmission worked as it was supposed to. I sent e-mails to Michael Horn, Head of After Sales, the VP and J. Browning the CEO & President of Volkswagen America. K. Fox, Executive Specialist, had us take the car to a dealer of our choice and they paid for the diagnostic test. Well, she came back and said that the DSG transmission Mechatronic unit was defective and that Volkswagen America would pay for half the cost of the unit and that we had 30 days to accept the offer. I asked that she send that offer to me in writing. Yesterday, we picked up the car and were told the cost to us would be $824.25 for the part, $375.55 for labor, $50 for miscellaneous plus tax. I am not in agreement with that and am in the process of filing complaints. I would like to have my Mechatronic device replaced at no cost to me, a 10 year/100,000 extended warranty, the same that has been offered for other model years and that same offer extended to other DSG transmission owners who my be having the same problem. I would like to start my own 2006 TDI DSG transmission group here on this site.
