Hi everyone,

I'm new on the Touareg scene and I?m looking for some help/advise.

I've just purchased a 2yr old V10 fully loaded and absolutely love it. Not just the V10, but also the vehicle in general and its build quality.

However on the last couple of mornings when I?ve started it up and driven away, about 1 or 2 miles down the road when I gently accelerate I can feel a shuddering sensation through the steering wheel. I?ve tried changing my acceleration rate but it still persists. The power seems to be still there, so I don't think its engine related. But if I stop the vehicle for a moment (i.e. roundabout, lights etc) and then accelerate off, the shuddering does not reappear. It will then never happen, unless I leave the vehicle standing overnight (>12hrs).

Therefore I can only presume it maybe related to either a faulty sensor, Engine Management fault, fluid level settlement or viscosity (due to cold night) or ?..?

Has anyone else had similar symptoms or heard of anything like this? It?s booked into the dealers next week and then I?ve got another week before the 30day exchange policy expires.

I?ve also read about the symptoms of the faulty stepper motors on this forum and I?ve tried the slow full lock turn, driving forward and in reverse with no problems.

Anyone?s help/advise would be most welcome, so I can be prepared next week.

Thanks

This a common problem on some V10's It is best to let it run for a few minutes before moving off. It certainly does it on mine if left standing for a few days and sounds like nothing on earth. However it is quite common, it is very sluggish if you move off too quickly. There is a lot of oil and transmission fluid to shift around. I must admit it did not do this when new but after being very careful and trying to identify the problem with zero results and the vehicle going very well, stopped worrying

Hey Kaine

You should try living in BJS world

I tried it - its kinda cool

My 2.5 can now do 168mph with 18 tonne of scaffold in the back

It has bought peace to 15 African countries, cured 20000 people of Tse Tse fly infection on a short weekend in the South of France, and still finds time to rustle up a great plate of smoked salmon and scrambled eggs after a hard night on the town

And cross country, it recently out run a squadron of Challenger 2 Tanks through a quarry then destroyed them all in a puff of ignorance

Honestly - This continuous flaming and denial is getting on my norks

Back on topic - It could be something to do with the colder nights, possibly? As Pilgrim says, there is a lot of oil and transmission fluid to move round and warm up, and the gearbox is definitely more sluggish by design on cold mornings (longer gear shifts to ease everything online as the car warms up). Mine's only a 2.5, but it makes all sorts of noises first thing
