Volkswagen Transmission Replacement in Louisville, KY

We have been doing this for long enough to know that few phrases can cause panic among our customers as “the transmission is blown.” When a transmission qualifies as blown, it generally means that it is damaged beyond repairs and will require replacement service to mobilize the immobilized vehicle. If your Volkswagen experiences a blown transmission or your Volkswagen has several hundred thousand miles and you want to install a new transmission for the next hundred thousand, we invite you to get a quality transmission replacement from certified VW experts, that understand your vehicle and its transmission system professionally at Bachman Volkswagen in Louisville.

Warning Signs of Faulty Transmission Performance

The Volkswagen transmission system relies on sophisticated mechanics, computerized controls, sensors, and gearing to transfer engine power into drive wheels with variable torque. When problems develop with the transmission, the problems usually come alongside detectable warning signs. If you detect any of the warning signs of faulty transmission performance, we strongly encourage swift maintenance to correct any problems quickly with repairs and to prevent needing replacement:

  • Gear engagement is unpredictable, slow, intermittent, or sporadic
  • Transmission makes audible noises when gears engage
  • Dashboard warning light
  • Transmission overheating
  • Immobilized vehicle

How do you go about recommending transmission repairs or replacement services?

We take a common-sense approach with the calculation including the owner’s preferences and goals. When we make a recommendation for transmission replacement, it is because we have confirmed that the cost of replacement is less than the sum of repairs. It can also be said in another way: if the cost of transmission repairs is greater than replacement, replacement is the common-sense recommendation as this will provide a brand new transmission at far less cost and much more value versus repairing an old transmission. Ultimately, what we do with a blown transmission is up to the customer but you can rest assured that our recommendation has been informed by an excellent combination of VW service expertise and financial common sense.
