I know that this is not the VW list but I have more faith in y'all's
advice than anyone else (by the way, does a VW list exist??). One of
my relatives bought a stick-shift 1997 VW Jetta. It has about 3000
miles on it. I took it out for a test drive yesterday and detected
what I consider to be a problem. The problem concerns the following:
Traveling about 35 MPG with foot on the gas pedal. Took foot off
and then touched gas pedal again. As I touched the gas pedal, the
care exhibits a jolt. Same thing happened at higher speeds (up to
about 50 mpg) in third and fourth gear. Very bothersome . . .
cannot be right. Appreciate any ideas. Thanks.
