VW Sharan Reliability

The VW Sharan is not as forgiving on poor maintenance as some Japanese cars. The TSI engine and DSG transmission are very sensitive to bad maintenance. DSG gearbox failures are very common here in Kenya and this is strictly because of using bad quality automatic transmission fluid. If properly maintained, the VW Sharan is reliable car with minimal issues. Ensure you thoroughly read the Owner’s Manual as it contains vital information on the maintenance and operation of the car.
