2010 Volkswagen GTI Questions & Answers

  • 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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Volkswagen? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your GTI’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your GTI is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my GTI's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Volkswagen GTI’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Volkswagen. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
