Here's the deal, it stalls a lot, which may just be mine. But it seemed awfully convenient that the problem started after VW installed a new transmission that was covered under warranty. The fix cost me 300, last time. At any rate it's started stalling again, so I'm sure I'll be out another 300. The biggest issue is the level of service - it's piss poor. They're rude & uninterested in customer retention. If you get a VW, buy it used & take it to your own mechanic.
