Just because Volkswagen transmissions are low maintenance doesn’t mean they should be neglected entirely. A Volkswagen transmission fluid exchange is just one of the ways you can keep your VW around for a long time. Leave it to the certified technicians at South Bay Volkswagen to give your VW sedan, hatchback, SUV or minivan the care it deserves, whether it’s routine engine oil, coolant or transmission fluid changes or major repairs. Whether you hail from La Mesa, Torrance or San Diego, our National City service center is here to take care of your VW’s needs.
The engine and cooling system in your Volkswagen benefits from regularly scheduled fluid exchanges – and your transmission is no different. Just like the other fluids used in your VW, the transmission fluid will eventually wear out and lose all of the additives and friction modifiers that allow your transmission to perform smoothly. Your transmission fluid will also accumulate unwanted contaminants that could, given enough time, damage a broad range of sensitive components within the transmission. Transmission fluid can also wear out faster than expected if you regularly tow trailers or operate your VW under heavy-duty conditions.
Volkswagen recommends a transmission fluid exchange every 30,000 to 60,000 miles for vehicles equipped with manual transmissions. If your VW comes with an automatic transmission, then expect a fluid exchange every 60,000 to 100,000 miles. You should follow these recommendations unless your VW Owner’s Manual states otherwise. Frequent stop-and-go driving, trailer towing and driving in climates with extreme heat and cold can all take a greater toll on your VW, so expect your transmission fluid exchanges to happen sooner and more often to account for increased fluid wear.
Exceptional service is what National City Volkswagen is all about. From the moment your Volkswagen arrives at our complete service and repair center, our certified and factory-approved technicians will check your transmission for any signs of trouble and replace the old transmission fluid with fresh, clean fluid. Only the correct genuine VW fluid goes into your transmission, ensuring that it continues to perform with the quality and precision you expect.
