First time posting here. I recently purchased a 2012 Touareg TDI with 80,000 miles. I have been doing a lot of research for replacing the ATF and was about to purchase some oil but after talking to a sales rep he told me the oil I had research was wrong for this transmission. The ATF that I thought goes in this was G-055-540-A2 but the sales rep told me its a DSG transmission which requires G-052-182-A2. I didn't think this was a DSG transmission but maybe I am wrong. Can someone verify for me which oil is suppose to go in these 2012 Touaregs and also the cheapest place you have found to purchase it. Thank you

I don't know exactly what you need. But no way no how has any Touareg ever had a DSG. Whoever told you that should be immediately expunged from your list of Touareg technical advisers.

See this thread. I used the 2 bucket method to change my fluid.

I read over the flush post a few times and plan on doing it that way with the exception of dropping the pan and replacing the filter first.. As far as the Havoline I haven't heard anyone use it except you. Does it meet the G-055-540-A2 specs and have you had good results with it, how many miles have you put on it since the change? thanks for your response.

Good results. I've got 3,000 miles on the change.

The Aisin spec fluid is Dexron VI. See the Havoline spec document below.

G-055-540-A2 is listed.
