2018 Volkswagen Golf R Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Volkswagen's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Volkswagen tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Golf R towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my Golf R transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2018 Golf R’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Volkswagen's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
