Just purchased vehicle, seems to run at 3000 rpm at 58-60 mph, almost as if its not shifting into od. Often when initial taking off transmission will lag before shifting or shift harder than should. Thought vw's were dependable especially with 90000 miles. Think we bought a lemon. Is this normal for transmission and should we have the dealer check before were on our own with repairs. Also engine light came on 2nd day and right away rear coil spring popping to find out it is broken.
