2002 Volkswagen Golf GLS 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


This is my 3rdtime taking the 02 Golf
in for service. The 1st
problem -the auto transmission would
get stuck in Park, and thus wasn't
driveable. Dealer first made "an
adjustment" which subsequently was
unsuccessful. 2nd time I brought the
car for service, they replaced
a "celanoid-something" to correct it.
I've taken the car in for the 3rd time
because there is sometimes a long delay
engaging into Drive or Reverse. Upon
engaging, the car jerks. When having
an intermittent problem like this, it
is hard for service dept. to fix,
if they haven't encountered it. Next
they will reprogram the transmission
control board
