Here at Donaldsons Volkswagen, we like to call the engine the heart of the heart of the vehicle. If the engine is the heart, then the transmission is the pulmonary artery. The transmission helps deliver the power produced by the engine to the Volkswagen model's wheels so that it can take you where you need to go. Taking care of your transmission is just as important as taking care of your own heart, but instead of eating Cheerios and other low cholesterol foods, you need to keep your transmission properly lubricated and have it inspected occasionally to ensure that your Volkswagen stays dependable for you.
Luckily, we are here to help. In addition to selling you a high-quality Volkswagen, our state-of-the-art service department helps you protect your investment by offering maintenance work big and small. Transmission work definitely falls into the "big" category because of its complexity – and rather than try to solve any issues on your own, it is a good idea to have someone who is highly trained to do the work for you. Our service professionals are specially trained to know the layout of each model and the organs underneath the hood so that they can find any problems and solve them correctly and efficiently. If you have any concerns, our technicians will be more than happy to take a look for you.
So when should you bring in your Volkswagen for transmission work? For preventive care, we recommend having a look-over once every 30,000 miles. If you are experiencing strange vibrations or gears slipping – or if your Check Engine light turns on, then bring your Volkswagen to us right away!
