Questions About 2004 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. 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. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Golf’s towing capacity. 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.
  • Does my Golf's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Volkswagen Golf transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
