2019 Volkswagen Beetle Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Volkswagen? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Volkswagen Beetle? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. Defying your Beetle towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my Beetle's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Volkswagen Beetle transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Volkswagen, so check with your technician first. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
