Folks seem to be loving the work done at Rod East VW in the San Antonio area. Look in the 'Dealers and Services' sub-section...

And yes thank you for your response. I've been there once with very little luck..The Bhw seems to need some special software and the age of the car challenges some shops and Tech... I may be willing to spend 2k- or so but dealership prices are usually triple that..+...

After about 5-7 years, I would not even think about a dealer. They tend to lose those customers around that time because of repairs costs being high. Tech turnover also means they have less experience with the older cars. You'll want to find a good indy shop.

The code for the trans will require a rebuilt torque converter. It's a pretty common issue. You might try a search for a local TDI shop. I know there are some up here near Dallas, but there should be some in Austin or San Antonio too.

You can drive with that fault and not harm the car, unless you tow with it, for instance. Gas mileage may be less, and ATF life reduced, but I drove my B5 Audi for years with that code and wasn't concerned enough to fix it.

If you would send me names or numbers of shops/ppl there in Dallas, within reasonable distances I would take the car . And yes I'm going to have the trans rebuilt.. and replys like yours is greatly appreciated.

This is the TDI Club listing by state:

Locally, I've had Marin in Plano repair a cluster display for my son's Passat. He works on all VW. Tim's German in Ft Worth also has a good rep, but I have never used them.
Many of the contact or links are outdated. I would search locally, from what I saw, I would try this place, since they primarily work on VW and Audi and have a good rating:
