Many Audi and Volkswagen auto customers are complaining. After numerous complaints, Volkswagen and Audi extended their problem transmission valve body warranties to 100,000 mile warranties. Checking with the Audi or Volkswagen dealer on these extended warranties may help save you money. After 100,000 miles, you will be on your own to pay the high dollar repair bill. These vehicles are also having problems in their computer programs as well. It is unclear if the computer program is half the problem, but it needs to be done after the major repairs are performed to avoid harsh engagements and downshifts to 4th gear.
After the transmission rebuild, new valve body and computer reprogram are performed, it appears that you will have little or no problems after. As long as the transmission is properly rebuilt and the valve body is replaced with a new one, the internal problems will disappear. In the repair shop, we see many of these transmission repairs go through and other than reprogramming issues, they seem to last. The
Audi and Volkswagen dealer does not reprogram these computers for free, however it will ensure the lasting of these ZF 6HP19 - 6HP28 transmissions in your car.
If you buy a new Audi or Volkswagen vehicles with these 6 speed transmissions, you may consider an extended warranty that covers automatic transmission failures. A wise decision to protect you and your car since most of these model cars will encounter the transmission problems sooner or later. A small investment with the right insurance company will probably save you lots of money especially if the transmission fails. Make sure that you read the fine print on your transmission section of your insurance policy to see if the valve body and transmission is covered.
