Today we are talking about DSG, or Direct Shift Gearbox transmissions. This show initially came on the heals of a video I did with, Jason from Engineering Explained. I wanted to use that opportunity to answer your questions before his video comes out. Let me say, you guys are going to love that video.

Over the years the DSG transmission is one of the parts I get the most questions about. “Should I buy one? It makes a noise, it shifts funny, can I DIY the service?” and on and on. This podcast will shed some light on the topic. If you want to learn more, check out the DSG Transmission Explained video Jason and I did. It actually made it to the VW training page for a while.
