Anything is possible, have you had it diagnosed by a reputable transmission mechanic?


The T6 models are notarious for transmission issues. Usually a transmission related message will come up on the message center. If the message comes up, it usually puts the car in limp mode (you are stuck in 3rd gear). You can still go, but takes some effort starting from a stop in 3rd gear.
