Questions About 2002 Volkswagen Cabrio’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Volkswagen's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Volkswagen Cabrio? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. Defying your Cabrio towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my Cabrio transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2002 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
