2013 VW GTI (manual transmission) Transmission... issue?

I’ve owned my car for a year and haven’t had any issues with it until today. Whenever I shift my car into neutral the indicator as to which gear I’m in (or should be in depending) will show •4 or •5 when I am in neutral for a second and then goes away and becomes blank (as it should be). The clutch does not appear to be slipping, it always indicates the right gear when I’m in gear, but when I switch to neutral it shows a number when I’m not actually in gear. I also am having an issue with my Bluetooth cutting in and out and reconnecting. What can I do to fix this and are these issues related? The car is under warranty, but I’m hoping it will be a quick fix I could possibly do myself... thanks in advance!

I learned to drive a manual transmission car at age 50. What did you learn or try late in life? What still makes you say, "I always wanted to ....?"

I'm all about learning. I didn't learn to drive a stick until I was 50. I upped my cooking game by taking a professional pastry chef class, got a massage license, earned a Master's degree, and learned to lay tile in the last 20-25 years. I'm thinking about what I want to learn next, maybe playing Mah Jong or Backgammon or perhaps I'll try riding a motorbike again. And I kind of want to zip line somewhere.

What makes you say, "I always wanted to know how to....?"

Cadillac's research on manual transmissions: 55% of American drivers have owned a manual before, 66% know how to drive a manual. High income Americans more likely to be interested in driving manual

Before the launch of the new Cadillac Blackwing sedans with manual standard, Cadillac has released internal researching on the popularity of manual transmissions in the US. The Harris Poll was commissioned to do this research.

Essentially Cadillac's product planners had to figure out if a case could be made for releasing the upcoming Blackwing cars in manual, and commissioned this research to figure it out.

The original slide deck can be found here: Manual Transmission Study 30Oct2020 - Google Slides

Highlights:

  • 55% of American drivers have owned a manual transmission vehicle before
  • 66% know how to drive a manual
  • 42% aren't interested in manual transmissions vehicles at all
  • higher income and higher education Americans are more likely to know how to drive a manual and are more interested

Is the manual transmission being phased out in North America only or is it a world wide thing?

I was recently trying to price a Subaru Forester with a manual transmission but they are no longer available in Canada. So many manufacturers have phased out the stick shift in North America. Is the same thing happening in Europe and Asia?

Manual Transmissions need to make a comeback

I think it is really sad that you cannot buy a brand new truck with a manual transmission. Automatic transmissions have come a long way but for hauling I would still rather use a manual. They typically hold up better overtime and can get better fuel mileage if you shift correctly.

Why did my manual transmission do this?

The other morning I started my 2018 Subaru WRX (6-speed manual, 77k miles, tuned for over 50k), backed it up the driveway without issue and put it in N. Went to put it in R again and the gear went in, but the backup camera did not turn on. I tried to back up anyway and the car slightly lurched FORWARD. I turned off the car and back on. Same issue. Repeat.

Thinking the clutch was gone I reverted back to stock tune and limped it to the dealership. The clutch felt very weak in gears 1-3 all the way there. Before getting to the dealership I went about half boost in 3rd just out of curiosity. Revs just went up.

Dealership calls me the next day and says two different techs drove it and there were no issues. Went down to look myself, took it on a drive and it went like new. Drove home from work - no issue. Drove to work this AM - no issue.

I've had nothing but manuals for 16 years. The car went forward when I put it in reverse (no, I was not accidentally in 6th). Clutch was slipping, now it’s not. What the hell.

Why do manual and automatic transmissions use such wildly different gearing mechanisms?

I have been watching a bunch of videos on different transmission designs recently, and I am stuck on a seemingly straightforward question. Manual transmissions and automatic transmissions are designed very differently, with the latter using planetary gears and torque converter. My question is: why did automatics switch to this completely different gearing mechanism, vs. just automating the shifts in a manual transmission?

I am aware that clutchless and automated manual transmissions exist, but I am not aware of why the conventional automatic transmission design was adopted instead of them. Is this purely historical? (If so, what happened?) If not, what engineering advantages does a conventional automatic offer over an automated manual transmission? (The wikipedia page on automatic and automated manual transmissions did not give me a clear answer.)

Manual transmission players, do you float gears or use the clutch?

Personally, I float gears as much as possible for realism. The only problem is that I end up staring at the tachometer to find the right rev range, while in real life I would feel the gear stick pop into place.

Is it advisable to learn automatic transmission before manual? When a person plans to learn how to drive?
  1. Daughter will get a new car after graduation.
  2. Decision to choose a type of car is up to the daughter.
  3. In the US most cars are automatic. (Will buy manual if daughter prefers it)

Good spot in the area to teach someone to drive a manual transmission car?

I'm trying to think of a good place to teach a first timer how to drive a standard. When I learned, I just learned on the road. But my pupil is too nervous to try on the road because of the hills and because of traffic and pedestrians. I guess the place needs to be

-deserted enough that there aren't other cars or foot traffic to frighten or endanger or annoy with stalling, revving, and sitting still for extended periods of time

-large enough open space that we can actually move fast enough to have to shift into second or third and room to reverse indiscriminately without having to run into obstacles like buildings, trees, lamp posts or those concrete parking barriers

-flat, so that rolling backwards with the clutch in isn't terrifying (there's plenty of that around town once they learn the basics)

-legal to loiter/not criminal trespassing on private or government property. Not in the mood to get chased away by the police

How forgiving is the GLI transmission? Haven’t driven manual since I was 16, but I want one.

Hey all,

I don’t even have a GLI yet. Totaled my old car. I’m getting a nice sized insurance settlement for a down payment and have always loved the look of GLI’s. I’m 24 now and learned how to drive on a manual F150 but haven’t driven a manual since. I unfortunately don’t have a beater car to re-teach and re-familiarize myself with stick... how forgiving is the GLI? How’s the clutch response? Easy enough for basically a beginner? Or should I just go with the DSG option. Not trying to smoke my clutch on my brand new car; but I’d also love a manual car.

In a manual transmission, how do I tow a stuck car out without burning my clutch?

I'm in the middle of the Texas Winter Storm and some cars (including my own) had to get towed a foot or two to break the ice holding the wheels or brakes. I have an Audi with a manual transmission, a proper recovery strap, and where the towing locations on the car are easy to get to.

My question is how to go about helping someone out without burning up my clutch?

Manual transmission and wheel[s] in the air?

To me the great thing about the Crosstrek is that you can still get a Manual Transmission.

The not so great thing is that Manual doesn't get Xmode.

So what happens if you get a wheel or worse two wheels in the air or on ice? They just spin endlessly and you are stuck.

There is no reason Subaru couldn't have Xmode with MT, so it just looks like they are punishing in MT buyers. :(
