I have a 2005 New Beetle. I am the second owner and I was never even aware of the valve body having any issues. I got the vehicle in 2010 with 31,290 miles on it as a high school graduation present and now fast forward to 2014 with 86k miles and the bug started having all the same issues as everyone describes. My parents paid for the diagnoses once for other reasons that were supposedly causing the hard shift etc... and the second time to see if VW would be of any help and come to find out they were not. The valve body warranty ended on 9-27-2011 and I got the car on 7-29-2010 and was never aware of the warranty until I started having issues with the vehicle. I spoke to the Assistant Manager at my local VW and they processed a case, but VW did not want to help at all. My car has been sitting in the garage and it has not even been completely paid off yet and I start school back up in a few days without a car for transportation since I commute to school. I just wanted to say THANK YOU VOLKSWAGEN for making my first car and my favorite model a nightmare!! I'm never purchasing a VW ever again.
