Questions About 1987 Volkswagen Jetta’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Volkswagen? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Volkswagen tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your Jetta towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Jetta is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Jetta transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Volkswagen Jetta’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.
