: A3 transmission issues after mechatronic replacement

I have a 2008 A3 at 28k miles. Started having transmission sluggishness at 14k miles. My driving experience wasn't significantly improved after the mechatronic replacement and after losing confidence in the dealership I had it looked at at an independent service shop. Diagnosis: replacement of a brake light switch. No kidding!
now it is not lurching, not as sluggish, and the transmission shifts at a predictable time in both drive and sport mode.
Anyone else had this experience?
I've lost any confidence I had in the brand.

I was experiencing the lurching but had a part changed (it was under recall) and now the car is perfectly fine
