We investigate properties of oscillatory dissipative solitons (DSs) in a cubic complex Ginzburg-Landau equation stabilized by nonlinear gradient terms. As a main result we find a transition to dissipative solitons with spatiotemporal disorder as a function of the diffusion coefficient. This transition proceeds via quasiperiodicity and shows incommensurate satellites next to the fundamental frequency and its harmonics indicating a possible route to localized spatiotemporal chaos. The transition back to oscillatory DSs follows a similar scenario.
