Really? Just to be sure we're talking about the right kind of jerking, the jerking I'm experiencing is very violent. Similar to what would happen if you're driving along at 30kph and full on jam the brakes for a second and then let off. People in the car get thrown forward. It is very concerning.

No...the kind of jerks you are describing is extreme. But a DSG with improper adaptation wouod behave really bad. You mentioned that you chenged plates. Was it done at the dealership ? If not, I would strongly recommend DSG adaptation. It doesn't cost anything and it is safe.

In fact if I recall my experience with the DSG, what you describe indeed point to improper adaptation. I did face such violent shifts after my clutch clocked 30k kms.

I think my post must begin with the summary of my experience with Volkswagen -

Brilliant cars, unmatched stability - terrible service, and absolutely non-reciprocative customer service!
I had to throw my Vento tsi out of my ownership due to the same reason above. Sigh, they are screwing a good product with pathetic service
