 Description of the problemI have had several issues with some corrected but the hesitation of power and shifting issues with dsg continue to persist. Several times i have tried to accelerate and the car does not respond immediately, this has happened on the expressway several times. There is also some jerking in the car as it tries to go through gears. It also feels like it is going to stall before it actually gets going. Finally, the car has rumble feel through the pedal and feels like it is fighting itself and when you turn the wheel to the left it starts an on and off rumble. Other problems that have occurred were a loud knocking which was eventually fixed by replacing the entire engine. They first replaced the flywheel thinking that was the issue.
