Audi Manual Gearbox Problems
Lots of visitors have asked whether the manual Audi gearboxes have any known faults so I decided to write a post.
As far as I am aware there are no issues with the manuals, they run just fine. A few drivers I know of, own Audi manuals and they drive great. Also, if they go wrong its not going to cost you a fortune to repair compared to the MultiTronics.
I would also like to mention, that the newer model Multi Tronic Auto gearboxes are ok from what I have heard and read. The Tiptronics (Quattros) are also ok from what I have read.
Its just a certain batch of Multi Tronic gearboxes which did not do so well. See http://www.audi-gearbox-problems.co.uk/?p=1 and all the comments towards the bottom of the page.
Audi is a great car and a great driving experience but they have let many Audi drivers down by designing a poorly built MultiTronic gearbox which has caused nothing but issues for thousands of drivers, and not admitting its a common fault, where as Audi technicians say different. The later version of the MultiTronic was improved on and seems to be running fine.
