This bang into reverse , or when I put it into drive seldom happens more than 6 times a year and is always cured when I ' reboot' the car by turning the engine off and then starting it again. The harsh shift is limited to 1st or Reverse and does not happen in any other gear. Unfortunately it came back today with something new. I noticed the Display on the Dash to tell me what hear I was in "PRD4321" went to a solid red and I could not see what gear I was in. I also got a check engine lite in the dash too. No I don't have a coding tool to read the code. I'm just wandering if others have knowledge as to what this usually comes down to like a new Transmission Shift Module which is located under the passenger seat? 2005 Passat TDI wagon with 67,000 miles on it.
