My 01 Jetta VR6 Auto transmission I think died on me. The car only has 106,000 miles on it. Heres my problem. for a couple of days the car acted funny. shifting from 2nd to 3rd was ruff. like I floored it and let off and then it shifts to 3rd and smoothly into 4th..weird? Well I was driving to work and the car did the same thing but this time instead of shifting to 3rd the car didnt go anywhere.it reved up like i put it in neutral ! Oh man! Well I brought it to the only place in town that will work on my car. They tell me I need to rebuild the transmission. 1900 bucks without taking anything apart !!! I dunno i had other way crappier cars do the same but it was always something stupid and minor. the thing that made me mad was the fact that the shop didnt give me strait answers to begin with and charged me 90 bucks to tell me nothing and say "we dont know". When I told them I cant afford it and I was taking the car home to sit til I have the money they became more "helpful" and offered me a "cash deal" of 1600 bucks. That seemed fishy to me that they could just change there prices so suddenly. What if I said go ahead..They probly woulda got me for 1900 bucks or more ! Anyway anyone on here know anything about these trannies? If maybe someone may have suggestions or ideas what it may be. I've had the car for 2years and I love it. I just think my mechanic was trying to pull a fast one on me. only 106,000 miles! Kinda soon for a trans to go out ?
