Your GTI drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Volkswagen, from back to front. It’s one of your GTI’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2008 Volkswagen GTI, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Volkswagen's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.
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 2008 Volkswagen GTI drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Volkswagen could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Volkswagen GTI.
You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2008 Volkswagen GTI? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
