What’s the Importance of Your 2002 Golf’s Transmission?

Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Golf’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. 2002 Volkswagen Golf transmission problems can show up as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. Let Volkswagen Golf transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Golf at all.

2002 Volkswagen Golf 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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Volkswagen? Think twice before volunteering to tow a 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.
  • How often does my Golf transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2002 Golf’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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
