I'm not sure, Pat. But my 1985 5000S certainly
had a recall on it - else Audi wouldnt have reimbursed 
my friend after he had already put a used (sob :-(  )
tranny in.

My mechanic has told me many times that he has seen
a lot of Audi (auto tranny only) with problems with
the trans. seals (back-to-back seals) - i guess these
are the same seals separating the tranny housing from
the final drive unit.

anyone else knows something more about this ?
