    Just notice this rattling noise during warm up in park. Goes away when car is warm.
    This car has an auto DSG trans.
    Do these cars have the same issue as the 2006 DSG DMF issue?
    Is it normal to hear this during warm up?
    I was going to keep car until the 2018 deadline for "buy back" , but if this can blow apart and destroy trans/engine, I will trade in now.

    Need help making this decision.

    Thanks

    It's supposedly better but it can still fail. They usually give plenty of warning though through gradual failure.

    Ok, thanks.

    I'm not getting any large vibration. Seems to completely go away after warm up.
    I'm only going to put about 30 on it before the buy out.....so looking to keep it till then.
    What would be the next warning sign?

    Gradually getting louder, rougher. Shouldn't fail suddenly but it happens.
