What steps did you take to get VW to pay for the repairs. I will send their President an e-mail but I don't expect that to solve much. Perhaps I should send him an e-mail everyday...

I went to consumer affairs in my county. It took three months but VW fixed everything that was wrong with car including replacing the valve body which was the main complaint. The dealership went above and beyond. Good luck but don't count on VW fixing it without outside help. Thewoman from consumer affairs really haunted them.

I'm amazed at the comments about the VW Beatle. I really am disappointed in my car. Apparently the problem is more difficult because I have a diesel and I have a 6 cylinder. I also need a Valve Body transmission repair job that going to cost plenty. If you need my info for a lawsuit against VW let me know.

The Edmunds forums cannot be used to organize legal actions, gather contact info for lawsuits, pass along attorney information, link to lawyer's websites, etc. Posts along those lines will have to be removed so please avoid making them.
Thanks for your cooperation and participation

We can't discuss all automotive issues? What other restrictions are there for Edmunds forums?

I had the exact same issue with 2005 VW Beetle. It would ride just fine until it started to warm up, then it would begin to act up and jolt when it shifted. The dealer in my hometown said that it was the transmission and woul dcost about 5 grand to repair. No other mechanic will even touch it because of the type of transmission it is. Any ideas??
