    I'm assuming it's a multitronic?

    Check the service history, the fluid needs changed every 40,000 miles. Are you getting any other problems or indications? Flashing DIS display being one of them?

    Get it into a specialist quick-smart...

    Proper Oil and filter change is the first stop for any CVT issues but it ain't cheap (oil alone is £100 ish) fixes some problems especially if it been a while since it was changed.

    Jerky isn't normally a mechatronics fault (normally loss of gears or flashing display). You would also get a vag com fault report.


    If you get the loss and or flashing display the Audi mechatronics (ECU module in the gear box) aren't totally reliable.

    They suffer from contamination blocking the oil control solenoids, dry solder joints and breakdown in the conformal coating on the PCB's.

    A few companies like ECU Testing do repairs and DIY removal isn't that difficult if you can get the car in the 'air' its just very delicate!

    Otherwise is could be mechanical....Drive shaft CV and bearings could be worth a look?

    tyhanks for the replys it is multitronic there are no other issues apart from the engine oil low level warning light has come up i topped it up but i cant see that these are related ? its just really unresponsive when i first got it it would creep forward quite quickly now there is nothing but give it a while and it will start to move also i was travelling at about 60 mph put my foot down got loads of revs but hardly any speed its almost like the clutch is slipping

    It may look like an auto but you do have a clutch...
    The mechatronic does control the bite point etc but it can still wear it out.
    Might be worth having the oil change and the 'adaption' to reset the unit. I'd leave that to an expert but it all possible in Vag Com.

    Did you resolve your problem?

    I have the same issue - however I have no display for the gears on the Instument cluster showing at all.
