Questions About 2012 Audi A5 Quattro’s Transmission

  • 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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Audi? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's 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 A5 Quattro is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my A5 Quattro's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Audi A5 Quattro transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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.
