  • What happens if I "ride" my Audi's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Audi tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem.
