The 2003 VW Beetle has a sealed transmission and no dipstick. The transmission fails after the 50K warranty expires.
The auto, after 20 minutes of driving begins to buck, and cannot efficiently increase speed, causing major safety issues. VW is charging $6,400 for new transmissions on these and is refusing to acknowledge that there is a problem with their design. Search the Internet and see that there have been 80 complaints filed with the NHTSA since January 1st. My car is a 2003 VW Beetle with only 74,000 miles upon it.
