Questions About 2010 Volkswagen Beetle’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Volkswagen's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Volkswagen? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Beetle towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Beetle is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Beetle's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2010 Beetle’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Volkswagen's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
