  1. GTI MK5 / 2006-2009
    I have a 2008 GTI with around 120,000 miles. Recently the car dash board started flashing where the gear indicator is located. The car would then lose power and slow down.

  2. Ask A Volkswagen TECH - Hosted by Nitroscope8
    I have an Alltrack with about 20,000 miles. It started shifting really hard recently. It reminds me of the problem (recall or advisory) I had with my 200s Golf (Rabbit). Sometimes it shifts hard, sometimes when I try to speed up quickly it hesitates between first and second gear. That...
  3. RABBIT OWNERS CLUB
    Hi there, I have a 2008 Volkswagen Rabbit where several of the gears are not shifting properly, and over-revving at times. I've tried the reset transmission trick that's been popular on these forums, but at this point it's not getting the job the done. The car has 161k miles. I've considering...

    The Issue: The vw golf starts and runs perfectly fine. I have been offered to purchase this car for 600 dollars and I’m seriously thinking about it.

    Hey all, I have a 2012 Jetta 2.0 with a 6 speed 09G automatic transmission. I'm currently going through every website possible trying to find the transmission oil level pipe that goes right above the transmission drain plug. I was hoping to get some help here. I would highly appreciate any...
  8. Jetta Owners Club
    So I bought myself a 2003 Jetta GL Wagon, 5 speed. I welcome all new friends and those who know where to get parts for good prices lol. This is my first VW and it's a bit of a mechanic special, but it runs and the motor and transmission are solid, as well as the frame.

    I am a 28 year veteran of long haul tractor trailer experience. I have never used electric brakes before, and have purchased a 2018 Atlas. I will be mainly pulling a travel trailer around BC, so it will be mountainous conditions. As I am used to air brakes, what are the differing factors when...
  11. TIGUAN OWNERS CLUB
    We have a 2018 Tiguan that has developed a problem. First the first 7-8 mos. and about 7-8K miles it was perfect. Then, upon acceleration from a standing stop, it stumbles, or seems to bog down, rather than smoothly accelerating. On a couple of occasions, we had plenty of time to cross a...
