What is a DSG Transmission?

Since 2004 the Volkswagen Auto Group, VAG, has outfitted a number of their models with a dual-clutch transmission known as the DSG, Direct Shift-Gearbox, or S-tronic for Audi models. The DSG transmission offers a quicker and more direct gear change than you could have in a traditional automatic or manual transmission. This is thanks to the addition of a second clutch that gets the next gear ready for use at the press of a paddle.

When do I need to do a DSG service?

At Eurofed automotive we recommend having DSG transmission service performed every 40,000 miles. The same 40,000 mile service interval also applies to the S tronic transmission service.

The transmission service includes our dealer certified mechanic changing the transmission fluid and DSG filter. During the service our Volkswagen mechanic will perform a courtesy multipoint inspection on the entirety of the vehicle to ensure it is up to date on all of its factory scheduled service and other preventative maintenance..

Where can I have a shop perform a DSG service near me?

You can have an DSG service performed by a dealer-certified technician at any of our 13 Eurofed locations backed by a 2 year/ 24,000 mile warranty.

Can I tune my DSG for better performance?

Yes you can! On top of keeping your transmission serviced Eurofed offers tunes for your DSG equipped Volkswagen from a variety of industry leading performance vendors such as APR and Unitronic

The benefit of a APR DSG tune is that it fully optimizes the performance potential of your DSG/S Tronic equipped VW/Audi. When coupled with a Stage 1 APR tune it further unlocks the performance of your vehicle with increased horsepower and torque.
