Hi all,Can I ask if anyone has experienced the same issue as me. In the past couple of weeks my car has whilst slowing down has made a loud bang/clunck as if it come from the gear box, definately to dowith the transmission, this did make a jolt in the car. Though the car is in D and a low gear.It happened whilst hovering over the pedels, deciding where I was driving, when driving around some country lanes, not that Ithink this makes any difference, I have had the issue with the vibration sorted I think, seems to be ok now, guess time will tell on that issue.please help with any info, car is booked in for 26th

I've not experienced this at all, definitely something for the garage to look at.

Hi
VAG group DSG/Stronic gearboxes are prone to problems.
Try googling mechatronic problems, this may answer your question.

I don't think you should be too alarmed by the Google results. There are no relevant posts later than 2009-2010 and there is a big difference between the Mechatronic 'box and the Audi S-Tronic. I couldn't find anything that related to the current version S-Tronic 'box as fitted to Audis but there were definite problems with DSG 'boxes fitted to VWs 2007-2009.
