If it's like the auto tranny on my '97 A4, there is NO service possible until it fails. These are sealed units. If you look carefully you'll find that there isn't even a dipstick to check fluid levels.

It's inconceivable to me that we cannot service these transmissions to give us a chance at lengthening the service life. VW/Audi is so bloody confident of their engineering that they will not even give any reference to outside repair facilities on how to rebuild the transmission if it fails. It has to be replaced in toto with an entirely new unit. UNBELIEVABLE. I've checked cost on this as well, over $3k for the new unit plus labor.

This is absolutely the last Audi I'll ever own.
