    if you're transmission has over 60k miles on the original fluid and filter, you could have a dirty valve body with sticking solenoids.

    do a fluid and filter change every 50-60k miles

    Re: 2007 Rabbit auto transmission issues

    referring to your first concern:
    1) When decelerating, the engine is idling as it goes from 6th to 5th, and when it shifts into 4th gear at 30 MPH it wil sometimes slam, shaking the whole car like I slammed on the brakes for a brief second.....

    My 2007 Rabbit with 130000K was sometimes (20X) slamming into a lower gear when driving slowly 40k not sure what gear it was scary as it does shake the whole car also the engine would turn off randomly at idle and sometimes at freeway speed very scary too all I could do was coast to a stop and restart the car. I changed the fuel pump and the battery with no solution I did a diagnostics with VCDS scan tool and noticed the crankshaft position sensor had faulted a few times.I replaced the crankshaft position sensor an easily and quickly done task as well an inexpensive part which solved the engine stopping issue right away and and lo and behold the transmission shifts perfectly again no clunking down ever for the last six months....not sure how this sensor affects the transmission shifting but replacing the sensor apparently cleared up my transmission woes for now......
