2018 Audi R8 Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Audi's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Audi tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. 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.
  • How often does my R8 transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Audi R8’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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.
