Volkswagen 6-Speed Transmission Problems

The Volkswagen Beetle, among other versions, is available with a 6-speed transmission made by Aisin. When difficulties with shifting or performance arise with this transmission, a simple fluid flush is not always the answer. The valve body is usually the source of the problem, requiring maintenance or replacement.

Volkswagen Golf with DSG Transmission

Golf vehicles from Volkswagen that use the Direct Shift transmission are quick to shift gears and perform well. However, issues with DSG transmissions can develop over time, typically showing up as shuddering during take-off. The clutch assembly of a DSG transmission may need to be replaced if it has worn out, or the transmission and seals may need to be re-adapted. Keep in mind that the transmission must usually be taken out of the car for such repairs.

These guys are SO great. Great job and a great price! My family and I (and even friends that I referred) drive an hour to come to them. They do great work and have excellent customer care! Even when it was closing time they were so kind and helpful, making sure I understood and was satisfied with everything, instead of just rushing me out the door. 100% recommend them!

Hello, had the transmission in my 66 Ford Fairlane rebuilt in October 2021. Nearly 2 years later still working great no leaks shifts just as nice as it did when I picked it up. Great customer service after the rebuild would totally recommend.


Take your car here. If you have any transmission issues this is the absolute best transmission shop you will find in Denver. My cars transmission lost reverse gear, and had a slew of other issues going on internally that I didn’t even know about, requiring a complete transmission rebuild. Devin was absolutely phenomenal, and let me know everything that was happening during the entire service. These guys absolutely stand by their word, and work. The diagnostic is only $90. With 250k miles, I have a rebuilt engine with 50k miles on it, and now a new, rebuilt transmission. Flawless. Another 4×4 lives another day. Drives smoother than ever. Thank you guys!

Brought my 08 pontiac grand prix for a rebuild of the transmission, car was done within two days of dropping it off and the price quoted was correct and affordable (for a transmission rebuild) the shop is very professional and knowledgeable also friendly and don’t make you feel dumb or belittle you for asking questions. Also check back in with you on their work a week or two later. Would definitely return to these guys for any transmission work I’ll need on any of my vehicles and will always recommend them to friends, family and anyone needing work done. Thank you guys!!

Eleanore Thayer

I can not rave enough about thus place. Randy and his team are fast, friendly, and KNOW what they are doing! I had my clutch replaced here after being less than happy with another company doing it twice and blowing it both times in two years… This team is transparent and care about the quality of their work. If you need transmission work or your clutch replaced, this is your company. They made my Subaru ready for the road and I couldn’t be happier! 10/10 tldr: use this company and you will be a happy camper
