2012 Volkswagen Routan Drivetrain Repair & Service

2012 Volkswagen Routan Drivetrain Service

Your Routan’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Volkswagen, from the axles to the transmission. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2012 Volkswagen Routan, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Volkswagen's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

Volkswagen Routan Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 2012 Volkswagen Routan drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Volkswagen Routan may need driveshaft attention if you feel resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." So much depends on the climate and your driving style. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Volkswagen Routan doesn’t drive like it used to.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2012 Volkswagen Routan? Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
