上個週末的早晨,我為了要洗車而去移動車子,我直接發動並移動到我指定的地點,而洗完後的這一整天都沒有再發動車子,直到隔日的早晨因為要上班而開動
然後我一如往常的發動並等待了 5~10分鐘,我放下手煞並打到了 R 檔倒車,但車子並沒有移動,我只好再次打到了 P 檔,然後再次打到 R檔,它依然沒有動作,我只好換到了 D 檔,嘗試看看是否會移動,不幸的是它依然沒有任何動作,之後我就打 R 檔並加了油門,車子移動了,卻發出來很大的金屬碰撞的聲響,像是東西被彈開的感覺! 我當下是嚇到了,所以一路上都一直觀察車子行駛換檔時是否有任何異狀,
所幸這幾天下來並沒任何狀況發生! 但這次的經驗讓我感覺非常不好,因為我沒有開過 DSG 的車子,所以我不知道這是否會讓 DSG 產生什麼不良影響,甚致我都不知道我是否有做錯了什麼動作而造成這樣子的狀況產生.
那大家是否也有過一樣類似的經驗呢?
我的車子是 T6.1 Beach Capmper DSG 150 5人座

願大家的車子都一如往常的正常

Last weekend morning, I moved the car in order to wash the car. I directly started and moved to the place I specified. After washing, I didn’t start the car again for the whole day, until the next morning I started to go to work.
Then I started as usual and waited for 5~10 minutes. I lowered the handbrake and hit R gear to reverse, but the car did not move. I had to hit P again and then R again, and it still didn’t. Action, I had to switch to D gear and try to see if it would move. Unfortunately, it still didn’t move. After that, I hit R gear and increased the accelerator. The car moved, but there was a loud metal crashing sound. , It feels like something is being bounced off! I was shocked right now, so I kept watching the car for any abnormality when shifting gears along the way.
Fortunately, nothing happened in the past few days! But this experience makes me feel very bad, because I have never driven a DSG car, so I don’t know if it will have any adverse effects on DSG, even I don’t Know if I did something wrong that caused this situation.
Do you have a similar experience?
My car is T6.1 Beach Capmper DSG 150 5-seater

I hope everyone’s cars are as normal as usual

Has the van been stood for a while?
Sounds like maybe the handbrake had caused the brakes to stick on, the loud sound you heard would be the brake shoes releasing, this can happen if the van that has been stood for a while with the handbrake on.

Yes, the parking brake sticking on would be my guess as well. They do make a nasty noise when they eventually release and can make a noise when driving as the pads pass the point on the disc where they were stuck. However, that quickly passes.

+1 for brakes stuck on. Mine's a non-DSG but I find the brakes stick quite quickly after just a few days parked with the handbrake on. Nothing to worry about.

Yes, after washing, it was parked for one night!
Maybe it's like the situation you mentioned, but I don't understand why it's stuck like this~ but I will pay more attention next time, thank you for your reply!!

In fact, after reading your replies, I sincerely hope that the brakes are not released correctly, and the metal bounces and crashes!
The sound at the moment really scared me~

DSG really worries me a bit
I really like the fast feeling that DSG brings, but I am afraid that it will be damaged by my wrong use! I really love and hate DSG~
But after seeing your reply, I understand that it is not only DSG models that will have similar conditions. Now I feel relieved a lot. Thank you for your reply.

If I have just washed it I take it for a drive to dry the brakes

Don't worry about the DSG - we've had it on our car for about the last 6 years and it hasn't put a foot wrong in all that time. There really isn't a lot you can do wrong with it so relax and enjoy it!

Thank you for sharing your experience
I think I worry too much about the quality of VW DSG
I should believe in the quality of VW cars
Use it with confidence within the 5-year warranty!

Thank you for pointing out the key points
Suddenly it occurred to me that this time the car would get stuck. It should be because I left the car overnight after washing the car.
Before, I would drive out and run again, but this time I was washing the car at night, so I didn’t go out for a few laps!

Thank you so much~

100,000 miles in 6 yrs and the DSG is still performing faultlessly.

I have stopped using the handbrake on my driveway for parking. DSG in P mode, and all is good. No sticking brakes etc when driving away. I have to admit, my driveway is fairly level ... so that also helps.

Like the Americans. They always seem to just use P, except in San Francisco.

The parking pawl is fairly robust on most auto/DSG boxes these days I think. And certainly more reliable than a poorly adjusted handbrake anyway!

I did read once someone arguing that if you got nudged by another vehicle it would snap the pawl but my guess is that could happen if the parking brake was on in any case so what are you gonna do.

It's nice that the garage is flat
My garage happens to be a bit sloped
So I have to use the hand brake~
Thanks for your reply~
