Hi
Has anyone experienced these symptoms, has had diagnostics done and no faults showing


Sometimes when turning at junctions and small traffic islands gears seem to slip as if clutch has been put down when you reduce revs it corrects itself but car usually selects 1st gear causing high revs . This only happens when the car is moving and turning either left or right and you start to accelerate from low speeds

Does not slip when accelerating in a straight line only when turning left or right
Thanks

Is this an old problem, or did it recently occur? There is a similar symptom that occurs when you slow down , usually at a roundabout with the brakes and quickly reapply the accelerator. The motor will not respond for a second or two and then drops a gear and engages harshly. This problem can be coded out, Im not sure if what you are experiencing the same one.

Thanks for the reply… this seems more when you are actually turning and start to straighten and accelerate, only recently started doing this , but it’s very intermittent at the moment

BTW, the issue I mentioned will not occur if you leave enough time between releasing the brakes to applying the accelerator.Just check that you are not applying the brakes just before accelerating when it occurs.Wait 1 - 2secs after releasing brakes before accelerating.
I can't remember the value, but there is a speed threshold related as well, so it might seem intermittent.
Does anything change in manual mode,S or D?
Was a dsg adaptation with vcds done at the service? If you have vcds, warm the car up and do it.

Just checked, basically if you keep brake pressed more than 0.5s and rpm is above 1200 rpm and the car is moving, there may be some delay when you release the brake and press the accelerator. So try not pressing brakes when you turn as a test

The same thing has happened to me for quite a while now, at very low speeds it selects 1st . Never gone to the garage about it and just put it down to going that slow the box just goes into 1st. Other than that it drives fine.

Sounds like normal downshift behaviour. Especially noticeable if S is selected instead of D. The original problem is normal too, it is there to prevent unwanted acceleration when brakes are applied, just in case the accelerator were to develop a fault and give an acceleration signal. Very noticeable for those who drive with both feet, but can happen even when just using the right foot.
