Can you drive off or are you just stuck in neutral?? And, if you can drive off, does the engine rev in neutral when the shift from 1st to 2nd occurs?

Please answer the first question.

If your transmission revs up in neutral from 1st to 2nd, that's definitely NOT good. The only other thing is that you check out the speed sensor on the car or the computer. If those items are fine, it's probably a transmission problem and it will cost a fortune. I'm sorry, but I lost confidence in VW after owning two of them.

    I just bought a vw 2006 beetle. I noticed it has started leaking oil. If you are standing in front of the vehicle the leak is on the left hand side. It is about middle of the left side.
