2017 Volkswagen Beetle Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2017 Volkswagen Beetle

Your Beetle’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Volkswagen, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your Beetle and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2017 Volkswagen Beetle, you help maintain your vehicle's 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

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 go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2017 Volkswagen Beetle drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Volkswagen Beetle may need driveshaft attention if you feel clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. 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.

How much does it cost to fix your 2017 Volkswagen Beetle drivetrain? Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
