2012 Volkswagen Routan Questions & Answers

  • 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.
  • How much can I tow in a Volkswagen Routan? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Routan is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Routan's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2012 Routan’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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
