2006 Volkswagen GTI Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2006 Volkswagen GTI

Your GTI’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 one of the most complex systems in your GTI and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 2006 Volkswagen GTI 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.

When to Get Volkswagen GTI 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2006 Volkswagen GTI drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your GTI might need driveshaft repair if you notice 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." A lot depends on your driving style and climate. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Volkswagen GTI doesn’t drive like it used to.

How much does it cost to fix your 2006 Volkswagen GTI drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
