Replaced. Spent 800+ $. Now VW has a recall but I need it replaced again now at 100000 miles
Car start but initially rough after a week of no driving. Surges just after shifting into higher gears with gas pedal depressed and going uphills is a challenge. Once car is warmed up or has been driving for 20 minutes all problems go away (except check engine light)
