I have 2 gripes about the DSG:
1. Down-shifting while braking hard causes the car to lurch because the RPM matching doesn't seem to take into account the fact that you're breaking. This makes the car seem unstable, especially if it happens while turning.
2. While accelerating from a stop in D-mode the car seems to think that I want to gun it if I depress the throttle just a little bit more than enough to get it going. The only way to get a smooth shift is to delicately press the throttle but the takeoff is painfully slow. Seems like the throttle response isn't optimized for around the town driving.

The throttle response is adaptive. Try standardizing your driving habits. I have zero problems with mine.
That's what I heard and I suppose part of the problem is that I'm not the only person who drives the car. :-\

Makes me really happy that i opted for the 6 speed manual trans. No problems.... ;D
Well the DSG is my compromise to sitting in bumper-to-bumper traffic during my daily 2 hr commute. Ideally I should have 2 GTI's (a manual and a DSG.) :D
