New recall of 80,000 Volkswagen, Audi and Skoda cars with DSG gearboxes – some for the second time in six years

Volkswagen, Audi and Skoda are recalling a total of more than 80,000 cars with DSG dual clutch automatic gearboxes because some are slipping into “limp home” mode and can’t be restarted without the help of a mechanic armed with diagnostics equipment. The latest DSG recall – yet to be announced on the Federal Government’s recall website – includes about 62,000 Volkswagens, 14,000 Audis and 4500 Skodas.
