2012 Volkswagen Passat Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2012 Volkswagen Passat

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Passat's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Volkswagen, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your Passat’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2012 Volkswagen Passat, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Volkswagen's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

What Are Volkswagen Passat Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2012 Volkswagen Passat drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Volkswagen could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Volkswagen Passat drives.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 2012 Volkswagen Passat drivetrain repair is expensive. Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
