Had a good run to Torquay and back for the FA Cup yesterday but noticed a possible problem. When the engine was under load (climbing hills or pulling away from roundabouts) with 4 people on board I noticed the engine revs dipping and surging by a couple of hundred RPM. This was mainly from 50mph up to motorway speeds and when climbing hills with a steady throttle. Pressing the throttle harder causing the gearbox to change down stopped the problem. It felt like the clutch was engaging and disengaging slightly, hence riding the clutch slightly and causing the revs to rise. The dips and surges only lasted a second or so but were noticable to all on board and we all agreed it felt like the clutch. It was best described as a hesitancy as if the DSG was thinking of changing down and then not. Also when pulling away harder from slow speeds there was a slight judder or shake noticable midway through each gear. Today when driving with just me on board I have noticed the revs are still dipping and surging slightly when climbing hills but it is much less noticable. Any ideas? Anyone else had a similar issue? I have just reached 36600 miles and the car has been serviced annually (last time was september).
