2013 Volkswagen GTI Drivetrain Service

2013 Volkswagen GTI Drivetrain Service

Your GTI drivetrain transfers power from your 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: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 2013 Volkswagen GTI to maintain its performance power. Follow Volkswagen's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

When to Get Volkswagen GTI Drivetrain Repairs

You don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are all different. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2013 Volkswagen GTI drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Volkswagen could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. 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 GTI doesn’t drive like it used to.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 2013 Volkswagen GTI drivetrain repair is expensive. Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
