    Hi all, hopping someone can help me with this, we have a 67 plate Alhambra 2.0 tdi 184 DSG se lux. When reversing on a steep or very steep hill I get a very bad judder when pulling off. Doesn’t judder in any other gear, just reverse. You get a kind of flutter or light judder when Reversing on the flat but hardly noticeable. Dealers have tried but said everything was normal. I have a friend that works at VW tho and he tells me that the VAG group are aware of this issue but don’t have a fix? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

    Sorry, can't help with your specific problem but we have a 67 reg 150bhp DSG and I have managed to get the engine to stall in reverse when the engine is cold. Too light on the power and it just stalls but make sure you have a positive right foot and it's fine. Weird as I didn't think you could stall the DSG.
