1997 Audi A6 Quattro Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Audi's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. 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 load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your A6 Quattro’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your A6 Quattro is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my A6 Quattro transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Audi A6 Quattro’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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
