Did you get your VW tranny problem fixed? I did mine a few years ago with solenoids change and helped a lot. now is coming back.
I found an absolutely great transmission repair place, 'Automatic Transmission and Driveline' located in Waite Park, MN. (by St Cloud, MN). The owners name is Roman. He found the problem to be one of the nine solenoids, and replaced for a total bill of less than $300.00. He was honest, very fair and had it done for me in less than a week. I highly recommend his business.
