There is a VW sotware update available for the transmission to cure this problem.

Details! I have had my stepper, transfer case, rear prop w/bearing, and the entire 6 sp replaced in attempts to stop the clanking into gear!

Fan-tas-tic! Thanks!

Update: North Penn Imports' Treg Wiz Ralph believes the front differential spider gears were damaged by my previous drivetrain issues.

All this because of defective software... 24 months after purchase, 50,000 miles and weeks and weeks without my truck. All because of defective software.

Thanks again, Goozie.

Shifting

I wonder if this the same problem I am having.

a) Sometimes, when I step on the gas, it takes a second or two to accelarate
b) If I am doing about 30 miles x hr, take my foot off the pedal, and accelarate at 25, it stalls and after a second or two, I feel the acceleratio kick in

My Touareg is a 2007 V6. It has 600 miles, took it to my dealer and the mechanic said it is normal. He claims it takes a while for the transmission to change gears. I think this is dangerous. I dont like it.

What do you think?

Same problem

hsierra and goozieNZ,

My 2004 V6 Treg has recently started this behavior as well. It feels as though I hit something, it jerks so hard. It occurs mainly when slowing down..then accelerating. It is really an unsettling feeling.

goozieNZ: the gearbox software update that you mention...is it covered under warranty? What was your experience when you took the T-reg in?

Thanks in advance!

Latest transmission update:

Replaced the front differential and drive shaft. Spider gear worn out.

Fixed most of the jerking/clunking that I (accurately) described as massive gear lash.

But I still have issues when decelerating and then accelerating as happens in stop-and-go traffic or when going up and down hilly roads at a slow speed, as in town.

MADDING!

I too have had this problem since June. I took this into my dealership and actually demonstrated this issue to them after they denied that there was a problem...

They had it for a week and told me that they actually hooked up the computer to a modem so the engineers in MI could download the latest software version, and that it was fixed.

It was fixed alright--for 1 day. I've called them once a week since this service call which was the end of July. There answer is always the same... As soon as they know what the problem is they will contact me to get the vehicle serviced.

Reading this yesterday prompted me to call VW direct and complain. The operator on the line told me that she is going to look into the issue and will contact me in 24 hours with a solution.

I have to question what physical damage is happening to my drivetrane every time this happens. I don't know about you guys, but this is an extremely violent experience, as though I just rear ended another car at 60 mph. It is really scary.
