6 Speed S-tronic and towing a trailer?


Registered User
So I would need to be towing a decent sized trailer for about 1200km(750 miles) in a few weeks with my '07 6- speed S-tronic and I've heard some horror stories from my colleagues about the 7 speed not being too happy with towing but how bad is it?

I have a removable tow hitch in my car so I could do it but I'd rather not if the gearbox tends to overheat or break when towing for longer distances.

Any thoughts on this would be very welcome :calm:

They tow ok. Did wonder myself when I started towing for the first time with Stronic but all is fine. Never used manual mode at all.
