The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your A3's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your A3 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2006 Audi A3, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Audi's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Your Audi A3 may need driveshaft attention if you feel heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates.
