2017 Volkswagen Jetta Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Volkswagen? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. 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.
  • 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. 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.
