Complaint - Power Train

SINCE THE BEGINNING WHEN THE CAR WAS PURCHASED I NOTICED THE TRANSMISSION SLIPPING AND TOLD THE DEALERSHIP MANY TIMES THEY ALWAYS ADVISED THERE WAS NO PROBLEMS IT STUCK HARD UNTIL IT REACHED 4TH GEAR IT RAN OK. ALL DURING THE TIME UNTIL PRESENT DATE THE TRANNY SLIPPED I WAS FINALLY TOLD IN EARLY 2012 THE TRANNY WAS GONE AND IT WOULD COST 6000K TO REPLACE THE WARRANTY HAD JUST ELAPSED. BUT DURING THE TIME PRIOR IT WAS AT THE DEALERSHIP FOR STANDARD SERVICING INCLUDING DIAGNOSTICS AND I ALWAYS NOTIFIED THEM OF THE TRANSMISSION AND WAS TOLD NO PROBLEMS. TODAY I WAS ADVISED THAT THE ORIGINAL HAD AN EXTENDED WARRANTY BECAUSE OF AN AUTO TRANS VALVE BODY ISSUE, BUT WAS TOLD I WAS NO LONGER ELIGIBLE. THE CAR IS AT ABOUT 114060 MILES. I WOULD LIKE HELP IN GETTING VW AMERICA TO REPLACE THIS VALVE BODY BECAUSE I WAS NEVER NOTIFIED OF THE PROBLEMS ON THESE CARS PRIOR TO THE WARRANTY EXPIRATION. WHEN ORIGINALLY PURCHASED I HAD EVEN PAID AN EXTRA 3000K FOR THE PLATINUM WARRANTY. CAN YOU PLEASE HELP ME TO HAVE VW AMERICA AT THE VERY LEAST CHANGE OUT THIS AUTO TRANS VALVE BODY THIS QUITE POSSIBLY COULD BE THE MAIN PROBLEM, AT THE TIME WHEN I WAS TOLD ABOUT THE 6000K I COULD NOT AFFORD THE COST SO I OPTED TO TAKE THE CAR OFF THE ROADS AND SET MYSELF BACK IN THE WHOLE BY BUYING ANOTHER VEHICLE WITH PAYMENTS, IN THE MEANTIME ALL THIS TIME I NEVER KNEW ABOUT THAT TRANS VALVE BODY PROBLEMS THESE CARS WERE HAVING. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ANY ASSISTANCE YOU CAN OFFER.
