2020 Audi A3 Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Audi? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Audi tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. 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.
  • Does my A3's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Audi A3’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Audi, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
