2005 Volkswagen Jetta Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2005 Volkswagen Jetta

Your Jetta drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Volkswagen, from the axles to the transmission. It's one of the most complex systems in your Jetta and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 2005 Volkswagen Jetta to maintain its performance power. Follow Volkswagen's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

When to Get Volkswagen Jetta Drivetrain Repairs

You don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are all different. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2005 Volkswagen Jetta drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Jetta might need driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Volkswagen Jetta doesn’t drive like it used to.

How much does it cost to fix your 2005 Volkswagen Jetta drivetrain? Minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
