Questions About 2012 Volkswagen Golf’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your Volkswagen's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. 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 offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. 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.
  • How often does my Golf transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Volkswagen Golf’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Volkswagen's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
