2012 Volkswagen Tiguan Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Tiguan's engine to its 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. Care for your 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan to maintain its performance power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Volkswagen's recommendations.

Volkswagen Tiguan Drivetrain Repairs

You don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are all different. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Volkswagen Tiguan may need driveshaft attention if you feel clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." A lot depends on your driving style and climate. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Volkswagen Tiguan drives.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan? Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
