2009 Audi A3 Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Audi? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Audi tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your A3’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your A3 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my A3's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2009 A3’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Audi. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
