car   Automatic Transmission problem 3
Failure Date: 10/01/2009

My transmission jerks / jolts significantly while my car is coming to a stop. This occurs pretty regularly, usually once on my way to work every morning when I pull up to a stop light after driving for approx. 25 minutes. It does this jolting no matter who is driving the car. This began happening last year. I have taken it into my dealer twice and they were unable to diagnose and resolve the issue. They did make me aware of a recent recall on a specific type of vw transmission for the same complaint of "jolting" however my type of transmission is currently not covered in the current recall. I believe they have a bigger issue with their transmissions.

The car began to have jerky shifts and then began lurching at slow speeds in first. In certain cases the gear would grab and then let go allowing the car to suddenly roll backwards on hills. The mechatronics unit was replaced after 35000 miles and then the second unit lasted for 1300 miles. I am now waiting for my second replacement unit. Note this is a Jetta gli with 2. 0t and 6 speed dsg transmission.

car   Automatic Transmission problem 7
Failure Date: 05/01/2007

Driving down road at normal speeds(55-65) an annoying clunking consistently going on under front drivers side of car. Taken it to sendell Volkswagen 4-5 times now and a cv shaft is bad but they say Volkswagen of America refused repair and said drive it til it breaks or gets worse! and a clunking noise is coming from transaxle at light throttle at 55-60 and other speeds with the dsg gearbox. They heard it and `can't seem to put their finger on it' so they stuffed foam under panels inside car to deaden the noise. Still no repair to date!!.
