Hi Guys

Have had my 2008 TDI for for about a month now and loving it. Comfy to drive ... great responsive engine ...and an absolute DREAM to tow my 2 tonne boat (came from a Navara 4x4 Duel Cab).

I do have a question about the gearbox. I find that it has real "slingshot" feel when shifting through the lower gears (1-3). I also find that it hangs in the lower gears for longer periods (and revs higher) before shifting at low speeds.

I certainly wouldn't say the gear box is "smooth" in terms of the gear selection. The mechanical shift is smooth enough ... but in terms of what gear/when ... i'd say that its "interesting" at worst.

Is this a general Touareg g'box thing ?

Steve

Sit down with a couple of beers and read this thread carefully and completely. You will learn a lot.

Buying a used Touareg. What to look for. - myTreg forums

Do a gearbox reset.

Turn the ignition on, but do NOT, repeat, do NOT start the car.

Press the accelerator pedal firmly to the floor and hold it there for a full 10 seconds.

Release the pedal.

Turn the ignition off and remove the key.

The car will now learn how YOU drive it.
