Hello,

I own a 2007 Passat Wagon 2.0 FSI. Automatic, 110K miles Randomly, the car jerks when slowing down from 5th to 4th gears. This happens a lot when I am coming down the hill. Any thoughts ?

Regards

Felix

I know with the B5(.5), they tend to downshift somewhat sooner than you would expect.
This is probably to try and keep the car in a suitable gear for when you come to accelerate, but has the effect of braking the car a little and causing the jerk motion.
