Afternoon people! Hope all is well out there.
Whilst I'm recovering from my stag do last night with a much-needed top up, my fiancée took the car out earlier. She's reported that it wouldn't get out of second gear, felt really sluggish and then when she managed to manually change up, it got to third before once again becoming really slow and laboured. After going to the shops, she got back in and drove home and it was fine!
Any thoughts/experience or knowledge here?

Thanks mate - yeah was excellent, just a few of my closest boys for a nice Pubnopoly tour around London and a meal. Got messy enough...!
Anyone else had ANYTHING similar? I'm going in for the mirrors and a wheel issue on Weds so will report it and see what they say.

I had the same problem in December. Turned out to be faulty circuit in the gearbox and required a new s-tronic box on warranty.
Take it in to dealer for diagnostic test.

Get it booked in at your local centre. Sounds like you need a new gearbox. It's happened to quite a few.

Also do not drive it. Get Audi assist to take it to your local centre.

Cheers gents. Not the news I wanted to hear but at least it can be sorted easily it seems. It's going in Weds to have the mirror caps fitted so will call today, report it and see if Audi Assist can get it to TW Audi for me.

Went in to Audi yesterday, was scanned and no faults have been recorded. If it happens again I am to get it checked again, there and then if possible.
