2018 Volkswagen Golf Drivetrain Service

2018 Volkswagen Golf Drivetrain Service

Your Golf’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Volkswagen, from the axles to the transmission. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 2018 Volkswagen Golf to maintain its performance power. You can minimize repairs by following Volkswagen's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

What Are Volkswagen Golf Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 2018 Volkswagen Golf drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Volkswagen Golf may need driveshaft attention if you feel heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Volkswagen Golf doesn’t drive like it used to.

How much does it cost to fix your 2018 Volkswagen Golf drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
