2017 Audi R8 Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Audi? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Audi? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your R8’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my R8's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2017 R8’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Audi's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
