2.0 wagon, when driving in stop and go traffic I get an occasional thump when the trans goes up or down from first to second, and vice versa. Can one of you gurus enlighten me, and suggest an inexpensive cure!

It is most likely the transmission mount which is on driver's side under battery tray.

I had same thing happening with my 2.0T sedan, at 90K it was bad so I changed both mounts and it was gone but with about 10K on the transmission mount clunk is coming back.

The factory mount is like rubber swiss cheese and collapses over time allowing for excessive movement of that mount.

Research engine/transmission mounts and you will get some insight.

My wife's 2008 2.0 had a clunking. Kind of like it gets stuck in gear. The dealer replaced something in the tranny under warranty. Ok the wife's care has under 50k.. Still there is something the dealer knows about that may have failed..
