2018 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.
  • How much can I tow in a Audi A3? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your A3 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. 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 2018 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
  • Is it possible for transmission fluid to leak from my Audi A3? Yes, your Audi A3 can develop a transmission fluid leak. As your A3 ages, parts of the transmission system might wear out or break down, leading to a leak and possible transmission issues. Common causes of transmission fluid leaks include worn seals, a damaged transmission housing, a loose or cracked transmission pan, an overfilled transmission, or faulty transmission lines.
