2013 Volkswagen Passat Drivetrain Repair

2013 Volkswagen Passat Drivetrain Service

Your Passat’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Volkswagen, from the axles to the transmission. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2013 Volkswagen Passat, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Volkswagen's recommendations.

Your Volkswagen Passat may need driveshaft attention if you feel vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning.
