Passat 2006 transmission issue.
I bought my Volkswagen Passat 2. 0 t in 2012 with over 100, 000 miles on it already. The vehicle was running fine for about 3 years, never had to take it to a mechanic. Starting 2016, I started to experience a lot of issues with it and I was told that the vehicle is over 100, 000 miles that is why; but I was not convinced. After a lot of trips to the mechanic, and a lot of research on the internet, it looks like the main issue of this vehicle is the transmission. I could not believe it at first because the vehicle was working so fine in the beginning, but I have to come to the conclusion that I have a transmission issue. On the freeway, the vehicle would drive fine, but when driving in streets area, the vehicle shakes and stop and go like it is struggling to go back and forth from 1 to 3. Now that I have the confirmation of the issue, I was told I would need more than $1000 to fix it.
