The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Atlas's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Volkswagen, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your Atlas and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2018 Volkswagen Atlas, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Volkswagen's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
You don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are all different. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 2018 Volkswagen Atlas drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Volkswagen could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Volkswagen Atlas.
How much does it cost to fix your 2018 Volkswagen Atlas drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
