Why would there be a delay when shifting your car into reverse?

The linkage in the transmition is loose.

I am having the same problem. I have brought the car in 3 times. They tell me there is nothing wrong, obviously they have not spent much time looking at the car, this happens to me 25% of the time. HELP!!!

I am still having the same problem. The VW dealership had it for over a week and when I got it back they had put a 5 centimetre scratch on the hood and cracked my windshield, then proceeded to tell me that it was there when I brought the car in. They have also told me that what i perceive to be the car having problems shifting gears, is just the car "downshifting" because it's a "low-emissions vehicle". Well, I'm still having the same problems and I haven't gotten any answers form the dealership. This is the first and last VW I'll ever own. The lack of customer service is appalling at the two dealerships I've dealt with.

A car might stall when shifting from park to reverse if the idle is set too low. It is also possible that the engine stalls because it is not fully warmed up before shifting from park to reverse.

It is important to know the signs and symptoms of car parts going bad. A thump sound when a car is in reverse is usually made when the transmission is going bad and shifting incorrectly.?æ

Came up to a stop light and when the light changed the car would not move.
