I bought a used 2005 Volkswagen New Beetle convertible about 4 months ago. It had about 200000 miles on it. The transmission acted fine. Since then, I have put about 7000 miles on it, and the tranny now delays shifting, has gotten stuck in different gears, 3rd and 5th, and takes about a minute to shift into gear when you put it into drive. It slips gears randomly, will rev up without increasing speed. I've gotten a code for clutch slippage, torque converter lock up, and tiptronic switch problems. Any help?

Can you post the code numbers you are getting?

The only code I know off hand is 1045, which was for the tiptronic switch. I will get the rest of the codes this weekend.

I've looked into it a little, and I'm kinda thinking that it might be cheaper to switch to a standard shift transmission than it would be to get this one fixed. Fixed now and again later, I mean. However I don't know a lot about this, so any input would be appreciated
