2013 Audi A3 Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Audi? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Audi? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. 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.
  • How often does my A3 transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Audi A3’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
