Disadvantages of the VW SQ100 gearbox

  • First of all, this is a rare gearbox, so there are problems with service or spare parts.
  • And this is a reliable single-disc robotic gearbox, which is installed on the smallest cars.
  • On specialized forums they complain about jolts, jerks or jerky work in traffic jams.
  • Some owners had to replace the clutch with mileages less than 50,000 km.
