Hey all, has anyone had issues with their ZF BOX on the V8 TDI 2013 Touareg? My is running smoothly but hearing stories of failures and I'm about to tour OZ with caravan just a little concerned as the car has got 120k on the clock

Its an Aisin box
Heard no reports of failure being an issue.
Of course nothing is impossible just enjoy the trip.
What could you do to prevent an out of the blue issue anyway?

Regards
Drag

I have got the box serviced and made sure it looked ok, mechanic said it looks good. I got told it's a ZF box, was that incorrect?

I thought that these boxes were difficult to service. That it involved some serious work to change the oil. My Treg is the same age, has done just over 100 K with most of it towing a 2.5 tonne van. I'm thinking of having my oil changed.

They take a fair bit of oil but have been told should service every 60-80k even though it's not a service item, don't think it will leave much change out of $1000.

The main problem with any auto trans in a modern euro car is LACK of servicing.
Get the fluid changed by someone who knows how or do it yourself if you are competant.
ZF/AISIN - doesnt matter - if it aint serviced it wont run forever.


Servicing procedure is much the same in either case, but the 6 speed and greater ZF boxes do have rather more expensive fluids.
