    Without taking them to court, you'll never win this battle.

    So you are telling me that VW deliberately, withheld telling the customer that torque is cut by more than 50% when reversing so as to preserve the gearbox? If this is not true, please provide me with a copy of the literature where VW point this out.

    And I am sorry mate, your reply is bulldust and here is why. Using the "technique" VW espouse in their manual DOES NOT WORK because of the power issue. If the car wont move backwards the rocking technique is useless.

    I want VW to show where it says power is reduced. Why dont VW just man up and fix it?

    I await VW's reply.

    Isn't it common practice for new cars to have torque limiters in reverse and the low forward gears?

    Yes it's very very common, some other 4x4's do it as well as nearly every hot hatch.

    hey guys sorry for resurrecting an old and obviously emotionally invested topic.

    Anyone tried this with the V6 ?

    Got a mate with a 3T trailer at the base of a pretty steep driveway and just curious as i might be needing to borrow it shortly and he usually reverses it out with his navarra
