I was just wondering if this was a common thing.
My two week old G29 just started malfunctioning.
The left paddle randomly registers two inputs instead of one, basically skipping gears during downshifts. It has become a major headache, causing me to blow engines and spin-out mid corner. I tested it on my PC with the Logitech software, and it is indeed registering double and sometimes triple inputs. Has this happened to anyone else?

Swap it if you can it's a common fault. https://forums.logitech.com/t5/Logitech-G-Controllers/NEW-Logitech-G29-PROBLEM/td-p/1425361/page/3

Yeah, that was a problem even with my first (or was it second?) G25.

Ok, so I've contacted Logitech and they will replace the wheel. I have to wait for an email with a shipping label, send them my wheel, and wait for them to send me a replacement from a warehouse in Mississippi. I guess we'll see what happens.

I still find it weird that people have to deal with manufacturers for stuff like this. Here we just take it back to the store (normal mandatory warranties for electronics range from one to two years) and they handle everything.

I ordered it from Amazon, so either way I would have had to ship the defective one and wait for the new one.

Amazon will ship a new one next day and give 1 month to return old one, so your not without a wheel!

Really? I wish I would have contacted Amazon first!
