Hi
I’m looking at buying a 262 Vw Touareg and remember in the past that there was a bulletin fix to cure the motorway speed 8th/7th gear dropping problem but cant find it here by searching.
Does anyone have the bulletin number that I can ask the selling dealer if it’s been carried out ? Thanks

Yes, it’s a known issue on 2017 T4 (and on earlier 2016) models and there was a bulletin released in 2018.

There have been several threads/posts on the subject. I can’t find reference to the TSB but I have found this image on another forum:

VW and at least one of their dealers can’t they weren’t aware of it:

The early 2016 model year, eg Sept 2015, builds were ok - it was the later 2016 model year and on into 2017 model year

Had mine done almost 2 years ago. Didnt get any paperwork, but was advised of the fix by Customer Services who rang me up to let me know. Think I was one of the first to get it. Took 30 minutes at a dealer. Wow, what a difference. Maybe Customer Svcs can get the reference?
