Your Golf’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Volkswagen, from back to front. It’s one of your Golf’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 2001 Volkswagen Golf to maintain its performance power. Follow Volkswagen's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2001 Volkswagen Golf drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Volkswagen could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Volkswagen Golf drives.
How much does it cost to fix your 2001 Volkswagen Golf drivetrain? Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
