Has Volkswagen fixed the DSG box?

Has Volkswagen/Skoda improved their DSG box to prevent reliability problems? I am about to order a new Yeti 1.2 with the DSG box.

VAG has just recalled 2.6 million DSGs worldwide to change the oil in them from synthetic to mineral. You'll probably be better off with a Ford Powershift.

Unique styling. Solid build. Excellent petrol engines including frugal yet peppy 1.2 TSI. Good space in the back. Frugal 1.6 TDI Greenline can return 60mpg+.
