Same as mentioned. Cant wait to get rid of this vehicle. I will never buy VW again in my life.
Engine coolant in transmission but not in the radiator
My car was working fine, until one day it just started to make loud noises when accelerating. After 10 minutes of drive the car with the loud noise, i finally stopped at a stop sign and the car stopped working and would not turn back on. I had to put into neutral and then the brakes stopped working too and I had to use the emergency brake. After I had the car towed to the dealership, and they assessed the car, they told me they had to replace my entire transmission- with no reason to as why it was broken.
Transmission oil leaked into the cars water radiator, gearbox radiator is leaking. Need a new transmission radiator.
transmission cooler keep going out, first at 8000 miles then 56000 and now at 67000. the cooller gets a leak constant into the cooler lines and messes the entire system up, im guessing the crappy cooler cannot handle the pressure the oil is sent at into it, and get perforated by the pressure. am i wrong? is there any way to solve this?
