Question about Cars & Trucks
You most likely ruined the trans by using the
car with ANY Trans problem,but that's what folks
like to do.
NO ONE can guess at these questions we get here
Vehicles have to be tested to find problems
The hard shifting & you using it- pretty much tells
me it is coming out & being rebuilt, to the tune of
The symptoms your describing, regardless of the reason
when they first started & if there was a solution, it now has
internal wear & damage
If you do not change the fluid every 2 or 3 years since a vehicle was new & it is 8 years old or more, you killed the trans, on any vehicle
That slamming into gear & driving only ten miles like that your done

This page explains how to change the transmission fluid but about half way down the page it tells how to check for the proper amount of fluid:
There isn't a transmission dipstick for this car.

My 2004 Passat 1.8T 4motion has the same problem. Took it to the dealer. I thought it might be a software issue as there was a service bulletin for a similar issue registered at the NHTSA.gov website. They claimed they did all the sensor checks and found nothing. Then they said the tranny was shot and for a mere $5,000 I could have a new one. I begged to differ so I called VW itself and described the issue. Their customer service rep was not even up to the type of car this was and had no idea about what I was inquiring. Those people are trained to be obstructionists by VW. I tried to get this problem elevated to a higher level and was told they were the end of the line. Sadly we're on are own with this manufacturer. They simply deny, deny and deny. I'd suggest you lodge the problem with the NHTSA under defect investigation. Maybe some day they'll find it was a design or manufacturing flaw, just like their coil issue.

There is an electrical malfunction in the EV5 solenoid electrical circuit. You must go to Advance Auto or Autozone and borrow their scan tool and get the code.
