Daughter recently bought a used audi a6 quattro-283,000 miles. My husband says that the transmission "feels wrong" when accelerating immediately after taking it out of park. Could it be low on tranny fluid? Should we have the filter and tranny fluid changed or add something like Luca or Trickshift to it?

I'm not really sure--It didn't come with an owners manual--I'm gonna strangle her soon though! How do I tell what kind it is?
just found a "quick start" type of manual in the glove box--its a tiptronic

IS THE FLUID RED OR GREEN. YOU MAY HAVE JUST BOUGHT A CAR THAT NEEDS A TRANS. MY OPINION ON AUDI CARS IS THE ARE MONEY PITS AFTER THE 40K MILES RANGE

GOOD LUCK I LOOKED IT UP FOR YOU ITS A CVT TRANS, IT DOESN'T REALLY SHIFT PER SAY. TRY HAVING IT SERVICED TO START WITH AND IF THATS NOT THE FIX YOU ARE IN FOR AN EXOENSIVE FIX. SORRY FOR THE BAD NEWS
