hard shifts up to 6th and down to 4th from 5th gear
just bought a 06 toureg, and took it for a spin, everything seemed fine, then I tried the passing gear and the suv felt like it was going to stop dead or have the tranny fall on the ground. what actually happened was it put itself into nutral, then I put it back into gear and figured I have a ****ed tranny. took it out on the hiway to see if I could still use 5th and 6th. it was all good. 1 -4 smooth 4-5 smooth 5-6 couldn't even feel the shift. 6-5 same feeling just more rpm nice. 5-4 huge bang kinda felt like it wanted to stop rolling, but kept rolling. 4-1 smooth no isues. so on the hiway I kept it in manual to avoid engine shifts down from 5. but at the end of my drive I started to feel the same sensation shifting up to 6th, not nearly as abrasive as shifting down to forth but the same.
any suggestions would be great.
ps : side note .... I cant open the hood either, cable doesn't seem to be hooked up under the hood. HELP
