1998 Volkswagen Jetta Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Volkswagen tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Jetta towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.

Regularly checking and exchanging your 1998 Jetta’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.
