Oakland, California (EastBayDaily) — The new Volkswagen Beetle has problems with the transmissions. Sometimes between 2nd and 3rd gear there is erratic shifting. Many Volkswagen owners report that their car had been to the dealership 3 times within 5 months. First it would stall out for no reason at all. Then wouldn’t shift right (it’s an automatic).
One customer put it bluntly, “I am also experiencing the shifting problems on my 2001 Jetta GLS (automatic). I’ve had it looked at several times and they can never seem to “reduplicate the problem”…
ER Transmissions has studied this problem and learned that the issues are with the solenoids and they have taken the solenoids out and cleaned them and put them back together and this usually takes care of the shifting problems.
Most often other shops charge up to $1500 for a valve body, when all it needs is a cleaning and repair for about $700- $800. At that time, ER Transmission will also put in Volkswagen VWATF transmission fluid. Most of the shifting problems with the 2.0L is its new ulev and shifts weird from park or reverse. It can also shift weird from 2-3; this is normally a software problem.
“If you are experiencing these problems and a dealership or transmission shop tells you that you need a new transmission talk with the skilled and knowledgeable team at ER Transmission before spending countless dollars on replacing your transmission needlessly,” says ER Transmission.
