My wife's 2001 beetle at 200thousand km's with a 01M tranny is slipping in 1st and 2nd gear. 3rd and 4th are fine. Reverse is fine too. I changed the oil and filter and no change. Vag com only showed rear abs problem. When I drive the car it will rev up, as if I was ridding a standard clutch, in both 1st and 2nd gears and when it finally after a minute or so it goes into 3rd then it runs along perfectly and up into 4th which is fine too. When I try to kick it down into 3rd it revs up and slips. Let off on the gas and runs into fourth and all is fine again. Hit a stop sign and the process starts all over again.
