Questions About 2018 Volkswagen Atlas’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Volkswagen's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Volkswagen tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Atlas is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Atlas's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Volkswagen Atlas transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed.
