2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Golf SportWagen's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s one of your Golf SportWagen’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen to maintain its performance power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Volkswagen's recommendations.
