Question about 2007 Volkswagen Passat Sedan
My car has a hard jerking when slowing from a speed of 35-40mph or higher like it is having difficulty downshifting, lugging. It does not do it all of the time. The dealership says when checked by computer it checks out fine and has done a software update but I still have the problem. I am concerned about big transmission expenses.
I have a 07 Passat and my car does this when I use plus gas too often (which was almost every fill up because gas is too high!!!). I brought my car to the dealership for the same problem and I was told to alternate the plus and premium gas to keep a balance. It's almost like a knock and then the car jerks hard after being sluggish. Try alternating between the plus and premium gas and see if that helps.
