Due to worsening left knee problems and ultimate knee joint replacement I suppose, I was thinking of changing my current MT 1.4TFSI Golf for essentially the same but with a DSG model.
I read so many bad reports about these boxes and driving experiences that I am a bit put off, to say the least. I read that it is really a semi automatic box operated by a 'computer' and therefore without a torque converter, has its drawbacks especially manoeurvring in slow moving traffic or in confined spaces etc.
How would I use the DSG,say on a long incline coming up to a T-junction on a hill? Crrently I creep forward then stop and put gearbox in neutral and Autohold holds indefinitely until such time as I release my clutch whereupon I get perfect hill start until the next hold up. Would one also use Autohold on the DSG car to hold the car stationary and then presumably pressing the throttle releases the brake an the car moves forward smoothly - or does it? OR does one sit there with the foot on the foot brake until such time that the traffic in front of me moves off?
Some advice would be welcome and yes people are going to say, 'go for a road test in one'
