1994 Volkswagen Passat 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. 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 offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. Defying your Passat towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Passat is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Passat's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Volkswagen Passat’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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
