Hi, I don't know if anyone else has experienced this fault. Yesterday (30/03/06) I was driving along the M11 cruising at about 80 mph, when a huge cloud of white smoke poured from the rear of the car (3.2 V6 petrol). When I pulled over onto the hard shoulder the smoke was coming out all around the bonnet and into the car through the vents, I was waiting to see flames! I rang VW breakdown, (they arrived in 20 mins, not bad). Under the car was a large pool of tramission oil. The mechanic doesn't know what had happened, but when the car was taken to my local dealership, the service guy said they had had two similar breakdowns recently.
