Questions About 2004 Volkswagen R32’s Transmission

  • 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.
  • How much can my Volkswagen tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your R32 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your R32 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my R32 transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Volkswagen R32 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
