2007 Volkswagen Rabbit Owner Comments

problem #2

Dec 182014


  • 145 miles


In December of 2014 while travelling at a high rate of speed. The clutch master cylinder completely failed. Leaving no way to engage or use it at all. Took it to the shop where it was 600 bucks for a new one the plastic pin inside had completely broke in half. In may of 2015 the transmission would not shift into gear while at a high rate of speed, it goes in and out and the mechanic said there is something broke inside a sealed transmission, making it very unsafe to drive. It is scary when it goes from working to not working in a split second.I have owned this vehicle since it was new.
