2004 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. 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 it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • 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.
