Generally ok except new ERG and now at 77000 miles dsg gearbox failure.

The car suits us for the upright seating and auto gearbox as recommended for my wife. I had the ERG give warnings and had to have it replaced at probably 50000 miles. Then I had the emissions software modification which did not seem to change the cars drivability as far as I could judge.
At 77000 miles after driving fine I came to park and there was no reverse drive. Then found only D1 selectable.
So far the mechatronics unit has been repaired and the repaired has found that a magnet has dropped off in the gearbox. Note the magnet is assumed to trigger a sensor and damaged the mechatronics unit when it came off.
VW do not supply spare parts.

Repair costs climbing away and 3 weeks off the road so far.

DO I WISH EVERYTHING IS RELIABLE AS A VOLKSWAGEN?
