Cars have been using dummy gauges since 1998. GM actually introduced it because of the amount of complaints they would get over a "fluctuating" coolant gauge.

This was back when alot of blocks went to aluminum, and lower operating temperature. Older cast iron blocks didn't fluctuate as heavy, and also ran a bit hotter which maintained a temperature more consistently.


There is everyone's fun fact of the day.

They have been non-linear for longer than that. My '93 Mazda RX7 was that way and I'm pretty sure my old Subaru XT was that way back in the day. Definitely not introduced in 1998.

interesting, never heard of anything earlier than 98 having it. I wonder if it was something specific due to the rotary engine.

Yeah, the coolant gauge on my 93' Corrado is fake too. Fun fact.

The low speed jerking is really getting annoying. No way this is normal behavior. Scheduling the DSG Service ASAP to get fresh fluid in it and then will drive it and see how it behaves. If it still does it, I'll hound the dealer to fix the issue or let me test drive a brand new one to compare.

Sounds like it needs the DSG service for sure. My wife's 09 Jetta TDI DSG needed that service, same symptoms.
