1988 Volkswagen Quantum Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Volkswagen's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Volkswagen Quantum? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my Quantum's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Volkswagen Quantum’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Volkswagen, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
