2005 Audi A8 Quattro Transmission Q&A

  • 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 a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your A8 Quattro’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your A8 Quattro is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my A8 Quattro's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2005 A8 Quattro’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
