I'm still very new to many car issues.
I have a '02 1.8T. I took her to get an oil change and tires rotated and when I got her back it takes about 5000 RPM to engage into the next gear or to even accelerate in the current gear-- RPMs jump rapidly with slight push on the gas.
I've had her for over two years now and had no warning signs of a slipping clutch, the (Goodyear) mechanic was talking about his VWs and how he keeps looking for new ones-- and I get mine back with a new problem :/
start up idle is normal (1200) drops to ~800 after warmed up.
1st and (half the time) 2nd gear don't have quick raising RPMs.
It takes about a minute to get 0-60 because of the raised RPMs and lag of "catching"
I hope it's a simple fix similar to changing idle RPMs...
