VERY BAD TRANSMISSION
March 4, 2019
Nice car inside out, powerful engine, nice handling, the transmission trashed the car and all the good work. Be aware the transmission performance deteriorates with time, feels like a torque converter slip, lag in shifts, and unnecessary upshift, slow shifter as well.
Navigation lacks street names - stereo keeps going to default settings - gas mileage not close to promised due to transmission - excessive brakes dust - voice command was better in the 2017 s5 - rear cupholder useless- transmission can be reset and then few weeks later gradually same issue. Anyone that reviewed the car drove it like a race car where its hard to notice - car drives awful on a stop and go especially when the auto engine shutoff keeps turning the motor off and then you have 3k RPM takeoff to keep up with a minivan, driving normal is very frustrating - Very SAD
