2011 Volkswagen Jetta Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Volkswagen's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Volkswagen Jetta? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. Defying your Jetta towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. 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.
  • 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. 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
