Hello. I recently purchased a 99 Jetta (automatic). My car was totaled and needed dependable transportation...anyhow, I had to replace lower ball joints, ac compressor, and rotors. I noticed another problem/concern the other day: My gears sometimes don't shift right away. What could this be? It sort of jerks between P and D and D to R.

    These automatic transmissions are known to be problematic, unfortunately. http://repairpal.com/volkswagen-jetta-1999/common_problems

    You may be in for another expensive repair.
