2013 Volkswagen Beetle Drivetrain Repair & Service

All About 2013 Volkswagen Beetle Drivetrain Service

Your Beetle drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Volkswagen, from back to front. It’s one of your Beetle’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2013 Volkswagen Beetle, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Volkswagen's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

When to Get Volkswagen Beetle Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2013 Volkswagen Beetle drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Beetle might need driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." So much depends on the climate and your driving style. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Volkswagen Beetle drives.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2013 Volkswagen Beetle? Minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
