I would get the car scanned with a VW compatible scanner; post any trouble codes that come up. You might consider buying a cheap Vw compatible scanner; check amazon.com the Vgate vs450 is about $50 or go all the way to a factory level scan tool VCDS, from Ross Tech.

Typical issues seem to be failed/failing shift solinoids and worn valve bodies.
