Sometimes my 2003 GTI,1.8t , automatic will lunge off from a dead stop.I give it some gas, taking off from a red light and" BANG", it's up to 4k rpm pulling hard, short shifts into second them calms down to normal. You never know when it's going to act up like this. I mean it pulls like I'm trying to race someone.Most times the car works & drives normally, other times it seems possessed !
Has anyone had this happen, what gives ? Thanks.

Triptragic transmission.

Get the transmission fluid changed, along with the filter. Ensure proper fluid level, whatever Bentley says + 0.5 liters.
Also do it before the trans gives up the ghost.
