Complaint - Power Train

TRANSMISSION HARD SHIFTS BETWEEN 2ND AND 3RD. THE GAS PEDAL ALSO FAILS TO RESPOND AT CERTAIN TIMES LEADING TO HESITATION DURING ACCELERATION AND ALSO WHILE DRIVING AT SPEED. WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED BY THE DEALER THAT THE TRANSMISSION MUST BE REPLACED, AND THAT IT IS NOT COVERED UNDER WARRANTY. THIS TRANSMISSION PROBLEM HAS BEEN DESCRIBED BY VARIOUS OWNERS AND VW HAS YET TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THERE IS A DESIGN FLAW WITH THIS TYPE OF TRANSMISSION.
