    Thread: Mk5 lurch(first post)

    1. 07-21-2012 01:33 AM #1
      I own a 2009 Rabbit. Automatic transmission. 33,202 miles Lately(I don't know if it's always done this and I just haven't noticed) the car lurches forward when I come to a stop at a stop light. I notice it mostly during my daily commute. I'll be going about 45mph, hit the brakes, and between 10-5 mph I'll feel a lurch and hear a soft clunk noise. In order for it to not do this I need to VERY gently apply brakes and come to a stop, and even then sometimes it does it. And appropriately, it's more apparent under harder braking to a stop. Any insight to this problem would be appreciated.

      that sounds like a transmission problem. appears similar to how my old hondas slush box trans acted at low speeds. From my understanding it was the torque converter slipping/grabbing
