Anybody who bought a Volkswagen in North America in the past year with a DSG gearbox will want to keep an eye on their mailbox in the coming weeks for a note from the home office in Herndon, Virginia. It seems there is an issue with a temperature sensor in the dual clutch transmission. Problematic sensors can give erroneous readings that cause warning lamps in the cluster to turn on or send the transmission into neutral.
The quick shifting DSG is a popular option in the Jetta sedan, Sportwagen, GTI and Eos. A total of 13,500 cars built between September 2008 and August 2009 are being brought in for inspection and possible repair. The VW press release is after the jump.
