Questions About 2000 Volkswagen Jetta’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Volkswagen's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Volkswagen? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, 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. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my Jetta's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
