Multitronic - Lets hear the "I've had no issues with mine" reports....
There must be people who have had their cars and enjoyed them with no transmission issues? Does it mostly affect the (bigger torque) Diesels?
I know there are lots and lots of stories and people warning about the doom and gloom of the Multitronic - But i love mine, and my brother who is an Audi Service Manager informs me that so long as they have the fluids done at 40k and that i checked/felt/listened for certain things when i test drove/inspected my car - i should be fine.
He mentioned that YES from time to time they may get a multitronic car with an issue, but they have many, many that dont have issues.
And when he was the Service manager at a big, busy independent garage he would see just as many gearbox issues with Auto/steptronic gearboxes on BMW E36/46/39 cars and Mercedes C/E/CLK etc.
I love the way mine wafts through the gears in D/S when i want it to and how i can sit in traffic like a full auto but then offers rapid fire up and down shifts when i want to drive a little more spirited.
