After 20 minutes of driving the gear selection indicator on the dash shows brackets around all the selections (see photo). If I shut the car down and restart the brackets go away. Having read many of the posts this is normally associated with shifting issues and a valve body going bad. The bug is not experiencing any shifting issues - all gears are smooth. Torque shows no codes. Perhaps early indicator of the valve body needing replacement? 109K on the car. PO did little or no maintenance (except the timing belt/water pump). I bought the car for my daughter with 103K on it and would like to send her off to college in it - but its an 8 hour drive to college so I'm not getting a warm fuzzy this is a good idea.
