Never said that they "Never" fail. Nothing is perfect. but here in the USA with the DSG in our MK6's its not as common as in other platforms or other markets. Do failures happen. YES. Is it as common as lets say, the Intake Manifold Issue? HPFP issues? Water Pump Issue? Stuff like that?? No.

There are guys here with DSG issues, "Some" but there are more guys on these forums with 100k+ miles with DSG's with NO ISSUES.

So its a crap shoot, like everything else with VW.

Granted if my car never broke down I'd prolly never have gotten into cars. Let those dice roll. I'm really hoping my intake manifold dies before my extended warranty.
