2014 Volkswagen GTI Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Volkswagen? 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 your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. 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 2014 GTI’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Volkswagen, so check with your technician first. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
