I just purchased a 2000 Volkswagon Beetle and it was by all accounts a good deal. Everything seemed in order, I even had my mechanic look it over before I purchased it. It' s been a few days and now all the sudden when I push on the gas, even if it's lightly, the RPM will shoot up and the car will sound like I slammed on the gas, but won't actually speed up.

Any suggestions?

    Automatic transmission or standard? If the latter, suspect the clutch or related mechanism. If the former, check the fluid level as per the manual. – fred_dot_u May 12 '19 at 0:04
