    The 'automatic transmission control module' ----CONTROLS THE AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION , based on inputs from a variety of engine , trans and possibly suspension and body sensors. What kind of service history do you have with the trans?

    I just had the transmission fluid changed. The car has not had any problems until now.

    Was the fluid change done at the dealer using factory fluid? WORST case scenario-- did you have it 'flushed' , with who knows what brand of fluid( even though it may have been labeled as VW compatible)? If it was aftermarket fluid , I would get it drained & filled at least twice with VW fluid , maybe that might help with the slipping.
