2013 Volkswagen JETTA Power Train Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Description of the problemDuring normal around-town operation the vehicle (2013 jetta hybrid) experienced a temporary loss of drive power. It felt like the clutch slipped or became disengaged momentarily (3 seconds). The check engine light displayed. We immediately drove it to a repair shop that was less than a mile away. After reading out a diagnostic error code (p0841 - transmission fluid pressure) and noting that the transmission fluid was dark and contaminated with a burnt smell, the initial shop decided the repair was beyond their ability as it seemed to be related to the transmission pressure sensor switch which is embedded inside the transmission case under 600 psi pressure. The car was driven without incidence a few miles (5) to the local dealer, where further diagnostics took place. They uncovered 2 additional error codes (p1806- function restriction due to pressure drop) and (p17713 - clutch tolerance). After a few days of internal debate at vw (i believe they contacted the chief engineer or guru for that particular unit), the dealer came back with the prognosis that the entire transmission needs replacement at the cost of about $9000. In the weeks previous to this episode, we had noticed what felt like a mild slipping of the clutch, but never a full loss of power and no check-engine light. The problems we are experiencing sound identical to those reported in nhtsa safety recall 19v866000 (vw's number for this recall is 34j6), which states
