Volkswagen Polo 2012: Car won't reverse

Asked by Ben

My 2012 VW Polo will not go into reverse, but will engage first and jumps into third gear, fifth and seventh. Is this a common problem, and what could be the cause?

It’s a dual-clutch transmission, which raises the question of a problem with the transmission or the electronics that control it. Have a dealer or an automatic transmission mechanic assess it for you.
