I too collected my 2.0 TSi DSG on Friday 1st and I'll report back after a few weeks. I've had automatics for several years so I'm used to them. So far (45 miles) it feels just fine!

Put a few hundred miles on the Kodiaq over the last few days with a mixture of A road, motorway and twisty B roads as part of a family trip, average MPG for the trip was 33.9mpg which given the car being new and heavily loaded isn't too bad but still short of what I hope it will be as an average.

Car is a great motorway cruiser, handling wise its not a sports car but it coped with the twisty roads relatively well.

Downside is it has reinforced my initial thinking, the DSG gearbox is crap and engine is very gruff over 4K rpm - not much point in going that far though as there isn't a lot of go, engine is much better suited to low speed lugging where it has plenty of torque and feels much quieter - wonder if removing the under bonnet sound deadening the 180TSI had makes the 190TSI feel noisier.

Engine note I can live with, gearbox I couldn't, i'm now grateful the Kodiaq is my wifes daily driver and not mine as I couldn't live with it every day.

I have the 190 DSG all whistles and bells, almost all, it was a ex demo ,2800 on the clock, It now has 7500 in July 2 years old, I have owned it 19months. It is the first automatic I have owned, I love it.
I bought it for pulling my caravan, it does it effortlessly , its very quiet, smooth, very quick when not with the van. It is not as economical as I thought, but the ride, the comfort, the room, more than compensates for the economy . I have tried the other drive mode settings, but leave it in normal, its given a few BMWs a fright. :D :lol: :lol:

The worst bit for me is encouraging it to actually get off the line within a second or two of me pressing the accelerator (delay from a standstill is intolerable). Only way around it would be to hold it on the brake with the left foot whilst pressing the accelerator in anticipation of moving which I can't imagine would be good for a clutch....

The new 190 TSI has the DQ 381 DSG gearbox the old 2.0 TSI 180 has the DQ 500.
By all accounts the 190 TSI GPF with the DQ381 gearbox is “having issues “

And for the winter months: 17” Black alloys with 215x65x17 Nokian WR SUV3 winter tyres.

I don't think its an issue per se, just the way its been programmed in the Kodiaq as its the same gearbox as in the Golf R (the DQ381).

Nothing wrong with it at all if you want a nice relaxing drive, but if you want something sporty then you have to stick it in sport mode (both gearbox and drive mode select) and even then you need to preload the gearbox to get it to move when you want it to from a standstill. In sport mode etc, once its moving its fine. Manual mode is fine whilst moving but same problem trying to get out of a junction quickly etc when stationary.

I’ve not really noticed anything bad to shout out about at all. It’s been very pleasant to drive and I’ve found if I’ve put my foot down it’s more than responsive. Granted I’ve only had it for a week but I’m happy so far!
