A4 manual gearbox problem
I picked my 2010 B8 1.8 TFSI A4 up about a week or two ago. It the two times I’ve driven it since I’ve noticed that when cold it’s really difficult to change from 1st to 2nd gear, you need to be really positive with the change. It is much better when it’s warmed up but it is still noticeably not as smooth as changing through the other gears (the car has 20k on the clock).
It’s a bit naughty of the Audi dealer to let a car go out with this issue but I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt and say they didn’t Know.
It’s also slightly concerning as the car had a sales banner in the door pocket on the test drive that was 2k less that the price they were asking when I bought it. Hopefully not a sign that they were trying to shift a bit of a Lemon (thought at the time that this was a sales trick to make me think I was getting a good deal).
I’ve emailed the salesman this morning but haven’t had a reply yet .
Does anyone have any experience of this problem and would a dealer be able to resolve it quickly or does anyone have any advice.
