What Does Your Volkswagen Golf Transmission Do?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Volkswagen Golf transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you ignore Volkswagen Golf transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Golf’s not even driveable.
