My girlfriend's father has a '99 Passat with a 2.0, and he asked me about the transmission a couple months ago, and my girlfriend asked me about it today and I didn't know what to tell her, here is the complaint: "It shifts rough and like when I step on the gas or the brake or when I take my foot off the gas it kinda, you know when you take your foot off the gas it will go back, Do you know what I mean?"

So what I think she is trying to say is it shifts rough and when you take your foot off the gas it's jerky. You'll have to forgive her, she's blonde

I take it is AUTO... Maybe a transmission fluid flush. There is a number of products out there that you can add to the tranny fluid to make it more smoother. I can ask my bro what he uses, I know he mentioned it once or twice.

Yeah, it's an Auto Thomas, and I made a mistake, it's a 1.8T, not a 2.0, doesn't have the 1.8T badge on it though...
