I recently had my manual transmission fluid changed in my 2.0, 2000 VW Golf.
It has 95k on it. It was a nice shifting car before this, now it shifts really hard into 2nd, especially when it's cold. It gets better with warming, but it almost feels like it's binding. The mechanic used synthetic fluid, which I think it requires. He looked at it again, and could find nothing. I don't want to have a big transmission repair. It was fine before. Has anyone had this problem? Do you think they are trying to pull a fast one?
