2013 Audi Q5 Transmission Service

Why is Your 2013 Q5’s Transmission So Important?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Q5’s performance. They're often easy to notice. Audi Q5 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you ignore Audi Q5 transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Q5 at all.

Questions About 2013 Audi Q5’s Transmission

  • 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. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Audi Q5? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Q5’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my Q5 transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2013 Q5’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
