2013 Volkswagen Beetle Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Volkswagen's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use 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. 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.
  • How often does my Beetle transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Volkswagen Beetle’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Volkswagen. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
