Hi EVeryone, I'm a new member here, I have an '05 Touareg 6 spd auto 3.2 Liter V6 Dark Blue 84,000 miles, not sure of the proper color name.
I had to have the driveshaft replaced about 3 weeks ago at the local VW dealer because the bearing outer bushing wore out and cause a loud thumping under the center armrest area.
Yesterday, on the freeway, I put the shift lever in the sport position from standard position and tried to accelerate.
What felt like a severe bucking/jerking started and the vehicle began to slow down, no acceleration and I had to pull into the slow lane for safety, after re shifting back to the standard position I was able to resume stable acceleration and freeway driving speed. I've never had this problem before.
Does antone have any ideas on this or experience with it? thanks
