My 2003 Jetta GLI 6-speed is at the dealer to have the transmission fixed (2nd and 3rd gear syncro being replaced). Anybody else have this problem?
The service rep. says that I chewed up the transmission pretty nicely and suggested that I replace the clutch with a higher performance (stage one) clutch. He says that I drive my car too hard and need a more powerful clutch. The thing is I don't drive my car that hard... never if ever do I redline it or approach the redline. The one thing that may cause problems is that I sometimes shift from 1st to 3rd or 2nd to 4th. My car is at 23K miles and I don't race my car, is this a common problem or do I need to change how I drive a 6-speed (I'm used to a 5-speed)
