Default Re: DSG, demystified! All you need to know about VW's Direct-Shift Gearbox

Thanks Sutripta,

So there might be a theoretical difference between heat build up in various gears, but in practice that will not make any difference.

So forcing the DSG to downshift from 2nd to 1st to avoid heat build up is really not relevant. Might as well keep it in D, and let the thing do what it does best; choose the appropriate gear for whatever speed/driving conditions apply.

BUT one never knows.
eg. - In the Maruti AMT (K12 engine), it seems to be programmed to use 2nd as its 'go to' gear. Left to its own antics, often I've found it holding second, slipping the clutch. When sanity says one should drop down to first.
If the DSG has similar programming, it makes sense to force it to shift down.
