I am with all you guys that are holding out for the diesel lets hope that when these models need service they will have very well trained technicians on hand to handle the task

Easiest question I've had to answer all day: "Wait".

Re: GC CRD with 8-speed?

Anyone have any info on other vehicles fitted with the same 8 speed box planned for the JGC? Would like to see if there is any history regarding reliability, effect on economy etc. Generally hear very good things regarding the ZF products.

Its probably the same ZF 8 speed as mounted in the touareg, the cayenne and BMW 5 series, no issues yet.
However, they are building a new plant in the USA, so hopefully hey will have the same quality as the ones built in Germany...


Good luck

Achim

Re: GC CRD with 8-speed?

Sorry to dig up old thread, but any news on when GC will come with the 8 speed? Trying to hold out and wait for news, but it seems nothing has been confirmed?!

The 8 speed in the Touareg and Cayenne is buillt by Aisin, not ZF. I have a 2011 Touareg TDI, the 8 speed is awesome! I may jump ship for a JGC diesel next year though.

Re: GC CRD with 8-speed?

When they send out the test vehicles prior to launching the sales, how many do they typically send out & how many miles or length of time do they like to have on the vehicles to make sure they work out most of the bugs?
