My '12 R has a little over 5K miles. The clutch is not slipping, but I've heard/felt the knocking sound when pulling away since the car was new. It doesn't do it all the time, but it's a somewhat regular occurrence. However, I feel no clutch chatter, nor do I hear clutch rattle in neutral (if there is any, it's very little). I don't notice odd pedal sensations when shifting, either.

If your dealer isn't admitting there's a problem, maybe it's time to visit another dealer and let one of their techs drive the car. Or, you can call VW customer service and complain - as they say, the squeaky wheel gets the oil. Hope it works out. Good luck.
