1990 Volkswagen Jetta Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Volkswagen's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. 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 Jetta? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Jetta’s towing capacity. 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.
  • When should I have my Jetta's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Volkswagen Jetta transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
