2013 Volkswagen GTI Transmission Service

What’s the Importance of Your 2013 GTI’s Transmission?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, even the smallest transmission problems should be addressed right away. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Volkswagen GTI transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. Let Volkswagen GTI transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or discover that your GTI’s not even driveable.

2013 Volkswagen GTI Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Volkswagen's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Volkswagen GTI? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. 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.
  • When should I have my GTI's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2013 GTI’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
