2002 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 4 cylinder from North America
I loved it until the transmission failed at less than 40,000 miles
The internal transmission failed with less than 40,000 miles and nearly one month to the date that the transmission warranty expired.
I am very sorry that I selected a Volkswagen for my first new car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I'd like to suggest you find an independent shop to do your work, they could find a used transmission and install it. BUT don't bother. You are in for a world of grief with this car. Take your losses (and it will be a huge loss... sorry to say) and unload it now. Then run far away from VW and don't look back. You can get a reliable car that is still fun to drive if you do your homework, and that is the important part. Talk to people in parking lots about their car, read the magazines. If I had done those things I could have avoided my VW.
