Questions About 2001 Volkswagen Golf’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your Volkswagen's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Volkswagen Golf? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your Golf towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Golf is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.

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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
