2017 Volkswagen Tiguan Transmission Q&A

  • 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. 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 light the load might seem. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my Tiguan transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Volkswagen Tiguan’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
