2010 Volkswagen Beetle Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2010 Volkswagen Beetle

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Beetle's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s one of your Beetle’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 2010 Volkswagen Beetle to maintain its performance power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Volkswagen's recommendations.

What Are Volkswagen Beetle Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2010 Volkswagen Beetle drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Beetle might need driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." So much depends on the climate and your driving style. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Volkswagen Beetle doesn’t drive like it used to.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2010 Volkswagen Beetle? Minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
