Questions About 2019 Volkswagen GTI’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Volkswagen? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Volkswagen? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, 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.
  • How often does my GTI transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Volkswagen GTI transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
