Questions About 2018 Audi RS5’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Audi? 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.
  • How much can my Audi tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your RS5 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your RS5 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my RS5's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Audi RS5’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.
