2005 Volkswagen Jetta Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Volkswagen's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. 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. 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.
  • Does my Jetta's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Volkswagen Jetta transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Volkswagen's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
