Questions About 1988 Volkswagen Scirocco’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Volkswagen? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Volkswagen Scirocco? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Scirocco’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my Scirocco's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Volkswagen Scirocco’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
