2014 Volkswagen Passat Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Volkswagen? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. 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 Passat’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Passat's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2014 Passat’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Volkswagen. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
