What’s the Importance of Your 2007 Rabbit’s Transmission?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, even the smallest transmission problems should be addressed right away. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Volkswagen Rabbit transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Volkswagen Rabbit transmission trouble you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your Rabbit isn’t working at all.

2007 Volkswagen Rabbit Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Volkswagen's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. 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 your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Rabbit’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Rabbit is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Rabbit transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2007 Rabbit’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
