Volkswagen Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your Volkswagen

Shifting issues due to internal problems in high mileage automatic transmissions can be difficult to resolve without transmission replacement.

One or more power windows may fail. Our technicians tell us this is commonly due to a failed window regulator which will require replacement.

One or both head lights may not work due to premature head light bulb burnout and/or bulb harness failure. Care should be taken to inspect the head light harness connector for damage when replacing bulbs. Damaged connectors should be replaced.
