Common Volkswagen Issues

  • Engine mounts wear out over time. They eventually collapse as a result. When an engine mount collapses the vehicle will begin to vibrate noticeably.

  • The drive belt(s) begins to tear. This is extremely important since a drive belt powers necessary components. Some Volkswagen vehicles also come with timing belts that can tear over time as well. 


  • The shocks and struts begin to leak. This will lead to a rough ride. 

  • The timing chain becomes loose. When the timing chain becomes loose it will make the vehicle run improperly. This would damage the engine.

  • The battery in a Volkswagen tends to last around three to five years. When the battery needs to be replaced, strange electrical-related issues can occur.

  • Suspension components, like end links and bushings, become worn over time. Strange sounds are usually a sign of this. For example, creaking or knocking noises. These issues can cause the vehicle to have worse handling and grip. 

  • Hoses and lines are common for breaking. These components deteriorate over time. This can lead to leaks, either fluid or air leaks. A loss of coolant will overheat and destroy an engine. Air leaks will cause a vehicle to run improperly. Oil leaks could destroy other components and cause oil levels to run too low. Too low of oil will damage the internals of an engine

  • CV joints tend to break and tear with time. If they tear, then the grease in the CV joint will leak. This leak will lead to more stress on the component. In fact, CV joints are common to break because they are always under a lot of stress. Hence, when grease leaks from them, it is strongly recommended to replace them. When a CV joint breaks there are a couple of common signs. There may be a knocking noise that appears. Another common noise is a "clicking" noise while turning. The vehicle may also vibrate. Please know, the CV joint connects the transmission to the wheels. It is very important for this part to be in good condition. If not, the vehicle may become undrivable.
