Common Mistakes People Make Regarding Their Volkswagen Transmission
If you drive a car for long enough, it will eventually need a transmission repair. This fact is true of any vehicle and any transmission, including your Volkswagen transmission. Here are a few mistakes to look out for and avoid when it comes to your VW transmission:
Not noticing the signs: The good news is that your transmission will let you know if it’s on its last legs. You’ll notice that the car doesn’t shift gears as seamlessly as it used to, or that the car is making weird noises—such as grinding during gear shifts or random whining and buzzing. If you start noticing these signs—or other issues, such as leaking transmission fluid or a sort of burning odour (the smell of burning transmission fluid), your car likely needs a transmission repair.
Ignoring the problem: If you notice the signs but ignore them, that’s a recipe for disaster. Some drivers want to put off transmission repairs, simply because they are among the more expensive car repairs. However, driving with a transmission that needs repair can be dangerous. Cars with unreliable transmissions will often shift gears randomly, leading to unpredictable driving conditions that can cause accidents. Bottom line, if you notice a problem with your transmission, you should call your VW transmission specialist (much) sooner rather than later.
Not maintaining your transmission in the first place: Like every other part of your car, your transmission needs to be properly serviced and maintained to maximise lifespan. Using the right transmission fluid, not keeping your transmission fluid levels topped off or letting dirt and other contaminants build up in your transmission fluid are all issues that can affect performance and lead to a premature transmission failure.
