Manual Transmission problems of the 1999 Volkswagen Golf



Three problems related to manual transmission have been reported for the 1999 Volkswagen Golf.

car   Manual Transmission problem 1
Failure Date: 05/06/2005

I have a 1999 Golf 5 speed manual transmission that has a hole in its core. When shopping around to get a used or new transmission(I called over 20 different companies around the us) I was told, by several companies that this is a common problem with my transmission. Some sales people did not even need the transmission code, they knew as soon as I told them I had a vw transmission for a Golf. Many told me they had several that had holes in the case/core. I did call vw to inform them of what I had found and could not believe they would even charge $750 for a core charge when it is obvious that there is a ptoblem with the cores on the model. I know there are many others who have the same problem, I would think maybe vw should look to see if it is a faulty design.

car   Manual Transmission problem 2
Failure Date: 01/15/2002

The transmission needs to be replaced at only 54,000 miles after a history of perfect up-keep. The dealership that is doing the work says one single valet parking job could have caused the damage and local mechanic says all the 99?s are coming in with this problem. The manufacturer themselves was completely unresponsive and uninterested in the problem. Now consumer has faced $ 1,600 to replace transmission.
