Shifting from 2 to 3rd seems to hold too long (surging) in many instances. 1st to 2nd is always perfect and smooth. Also it seems to engine brake (rather than gliding) at times when I take my foot off the gas. This is not desirable.
I plan to change the ATF and filter soon. I don’t expect this to help but it is a good to do it since it has not been done. VW says it is a life time fill. YA right.
I am not getting a check engine light.
Is this something that can be modified with software using a VAG Com diagnostic system or similar ? Is this indicative of some other issue?
