2015 Audi R8 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 small it is. Defying your R8 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your R8 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my R8's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Audi R8 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.
