I love love LOVE my 2008 Audi TT front-wheel drive DSG roadster. It’s my second TT (the first was a 2000 quattro roadster I bought new in the UK), though I bought this 2008 used with under 30,000 miles on it.
My question is about the DSG transmission. When I’m parked in my sloping driveway, nose pointed down (maybe a 10% grade) and put it into reverse, if I don’t apply the gas immediately it can roll forward (downhill) anywhere between 1 and 10 feet before “catching.” If I don’t wait, sometimes I still have problems “feathering” the gas pedal so that it doesn’t feel like I’m a novice manual clutch driver – it feels like I need to apply more gas and feather the clutch. Put another way, it lurches a bit and feels like it’s about to stall.
I’ve had two different Audi dealers tell me this is normal. Is it really?
Thanks – and really enjoy the show!
