Looks like normal atf cooler and works the same, but then DSG issue is not the oil but the macatronics of the DSG. Actually I would like to own a VW too but hear too many issues with them. The 1.4Tsi also have piston crack problem. Best bet is the Golf 2.0 GTi which have the 6 speed DSG. Seems the 6 speed have no or much lesser problems....

Your friend lucky, for some, problem came back. And if you are buying used, will have warranty?

In this case, do you recommend me to buy a second hand CBU Passat?

Check with them on the warranty issue first. If still have warranty go ahead. If not, you decide.....
