1998 Volkswagen Golf 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 102000 miles
i put money down on my car in april of 08, the reverse needed to be fixed and so the dealer pulled the transmission and sent it to a machine shop. I didnt receive my car until july 08! Then appx. 2 1/2 months later in mid october more transmission problems occurred. 5th and 3rd gear went bad, and so I took the car to a different garage, however he just pulled the transmission and took it to a machine shop to get rebuilt. Lo and behold the SAME shop it was at before! Well this time it took them (for some reason) 8 wks to repair my car. I finally got it back 2 days after christmas, over 700 dollars later. Well only 3 WEEKS later my transmission went AGAIN! So I had the car towed back to that shop so he could make it right. He called and informed me that 5th gear went bad and that metal had somehow jammed itself into 2nd gear and that needed to be repaired now as well. AND HE QUOTED ME PRICES AND WANTED ME TO PAY FOR THIS! I refuse, and he refused to fix it. So now my car sits in his garage and we're going to court over the matter. He said the problem the car has now is different then what it was before. I dont believe him. He said he replaced the input shaft bearings and whats wrong now has nothing to do w that. Is this a true statement? Isnt thats what holds my gears in place? Should he be responsible to fix this and should it have taken him as long as it did? Please respond asap as this matter is pending in court. Thank you!
have the same problem?
