What Does Your Volkswagen Cabrio Transmission Do?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Cabrio’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. 1998 Volkswagen Cabrio transmission problems can show up as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you ignore Volkswagen Cabrio transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your Cabrio isn’t working at all.

1998 Volkswagen Cabrio 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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Volkswagen? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Cabrio 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 Cabrio's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1998 Cabrio’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
