car   Automatic Transmission problem 1
Failure Date: 09/22/2010

I am having transmission problems on my 2000 Beetle. I was told the transmission does not need replaced but I feel otherwise. When I am driving my vehicle will pull back very hard and then jump and shoot me forward. I am afraid that this will cause a bad accident.

car   Automatic Transmission problem 2
Failure Date: 07/12/2008

I received a recall about my back or break light. Made an apt. With heritage vw in georgia. I drove from leesburg al. To the dealership. They change the light and told me a belt has to be replaced. I know nothing needs replacement because my son ( a mechanic ) does all the maintenance in my vw. I told the them I will talk to my son and will get back with them. I had a hard time staring the car, but did not pay any attention because I was in a hurry to get out of there. I was on hwy 20 when every thing went crazy with my car. Lost my cruise control, lost power, won't start. So I called heritage and ask what they did with the car. They want me to bring it back to them, knowing it can't be driven. I feel they sabotage my car, they messed up my car so much, I paid over $3000. 00 for it to work. I kept the receipt just in case I might need it as proof. I received another recall last week it's hard to get burnt twice in a row.
