Just popped in to say hello. I picked up my new 2011 Golf TDI wagon yesterday and am spending a bit of time getting acquainted with it. It seems lke an impressive machine. I'm on the fence about the DSG, but I'll get used to it...

One thing to be aware of - some people have reported hesitation from a stop if you quickly lift off the brake and step hard on the accelerator, like when darting into a gap in traffic. It's believed this prevents the clutches from catching immediately and can cause a lag. Others believe it's faulty programming. Once you're used to how it feels many people like it.

The only thing I worry about with the delayed clutch engagement is wear. Luckily the car comes with a good warranty, and I have extended warranty as well. The only thing I don't know if those 2 clutches are considered wear items or not. This little detail could be costly if VW chooses to not cover it.
