2001 Audi A6 Quattro Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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.
  • What can I tow in a Audi? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my A6 Quattro's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Audi A6 Quattro’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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
