I haven't checked out the car sense I posted last but I called the seller and she told me the cluch was repaced a year or two ago (when she bought it). Anyway I didn't know if that had anything to do with the shutter, but she said she noticed it to. However, she said it wasn't anything new, and that she hadn't thought twice about it until I mentioned it. She says it happens with every manuel she drives. Although currently I have a diesel Jetta 5sp. and that never happens, it is extremely underpowered though so maybe that has something to do with it. Anyway I am stumped, with this new info. do you think this is normal or should i have it checked out? THANKS FOR THE HELP!
