It could be lash in the differential which is normal, but it could also be a loose u-joint in the driveshaft. Check the rear driveshaft u-joints.

You can usually tell by grabbing the driveshaft & turning it by hand back & forth & push up & down, side to side looking for play in the joint.

SOURCE: hard up and down-shifting into 2nd gear - manual transmission

I have a Focus that had shifting problems. I tried different fluids, but eventually I tried Royal Purple Synchromax (I believe) and it actually shifts fairly well now. I used to hate the car for this. It has 130k miles and I like driving it now.

Sounds like a leaking pump seal. Things expand when they get hot and the leak stops or at least gets smaller so unit will shift normally. When cold the gap is too large, the fluid bypasses the seal and it causes shifting problems. Make sure your fluid is clean, correct type and proper level. Any good trany shop will be able to check it out and diagnose the problem, many times for free.

My 2005 Jetta is not shifting smoothly between the lower gears and makes a kind of clunking sound from 3rd-2nd. Drives very nice on freeway but it is very noticible when stopping and going frequently. ...


Standard or automatic? If auto have you checked your fluid. Is it full and what does it look like a bright red or a deep burnt red that smells burnt. Automatic transmissions use solenoids to control shifts for a while now. Occasionally they can get plugged or quit working due to small metal filings that come from where on transmission. When they gopen they will cause hard shifts.. p.'s. Is it cold where you are as vw transmissions really don't like the cold. They is many reports of cold weather causing hard shifts and also slow reacting to going into drive or reverse.
