2005 Volkswagen Beetle Q&A
2005 Volkswagen Beetle Question: Just bought a 2005 Beetle Convertible GL w 138,000 miles for my wife.
Car looks new and drives great except for an occasional "jerking" in the automatic shifting of lower gears. It doesn't happen every time but is noticeable when it does. There are no engine warning lights coming on. The other day I took it out for about a 30-35 minute drive in stop and start traffic and it did it 3 times. I'm just looking for some clues as to where to start trouble-shooting without tearing down the transmission. - Speed Buggy
have you checked for codes in the transmission? - big01_dram
another mechanic told me you might have to reprogram the transmission - silly goose
