    Shifting issues

    Need some insight.

    My brother just got a 2007 A3 with about 165k miles. He got it as a beater car. Anyways, when the car is cold it has no issues with any gear. Once it reaches operating temps, it only uses 1st and 3rd gear. No codes and nothing on VSDS.

    Most likely mechatronics controller unit, Iím unsure as to why that wouldnít trip a code of some type. Does is skip 2nd Iím manual mode as well? Only in D?

    The only reason I donít think it is the mechatronics, is because when it is cold, there are no issues. It does it on manual and auto.

    So last night he got a P608. Also started acting up more frequently even when cold. So yeah thinking is the mechatronics.

    I donít think Iíve ever heard a DSG skipping gears and still
    Functioning correctly! Also mechatronics usually act worse when warm.

    I would ride it until it dies. Post a video if you can!
