The seller indicates that the automatic gearbox has been diagnosed as defective by the VW Fair Play Paris 16 dealership. The failure is caused by a defective or broken primary shaft needle bearing.

The shaft is no longer correctly supported by its bearing, it has play and causes jerks, downshifts in 2nd and 1st can be brutal. This does not prevent the car from running but it causes premature wear of the BVA, and a degraded comfort.
