I have a 1.8T multitronic from new with 39000 miles with the same problem. The problem started at 33000 miles and was very intermittent. It mainly occurred when the engine was at 1600 and 2100 revs. Now the jerkiness is permanently there and it is getting worse. The garage say that it is normal.

Hi

I too have an Audi A6 CVT and again with the sam shuddering problem. It's good to know about the upgrade for the clutch to a 7 plate kit.

As well as the shuddering problem, the car has another one....when changing gears, the computer display doesn't show the letters of the gears (P,N,R,D). The display falshes these letters now and again. When you move the gear lever into trip mode, the numbers for the gears don;t come up either!! In addition to this, sometimes when you want to change gear to revers, the gear isn't selected and your stood revving the engine but the car doesn;t move!!!!!

Has anyone experienced this one before?

Update on my 'fixed' A6 - the juddering is starting again - took it into Audi yesterday. I'm now looking at a new multitronic gearbox, circa £5K. Don't know whether to trade it in at an unsuspecting Audi dealership against a a manual 'box, or get the job done and have a (hopefully) bulletproof car for at least 2 years... Audi have offered me a 40% discount but it still over 3 grand. Because i've already had the clutch upgrade, the only other fix available is the new box. Great.

I have a '99 A6 Avant Estate Auto Tiptronic and, yes, I'm having the same 'jerkiness' problem. I have a 6 month warranty with mine. In the process of arranging for dealer to have it back to look at. I shall tell them I don't want it back until it's fixed!

In response to the many emails I have received about my 2003 A6 CVT....
After taking it back to the dealership more than 5 times for the same issue, I was more than relieved to hand all the paperwork over to a lemon law attorney.

Late last year, Audi capitulated and I now have a replacement 2006 A6 3.2 Quattro. What a car!

Even after all of that, I am still an Audi fan and would certainly recommend the A6 as one of the finest cars on the road.

Happy driving!

Unhappy

I have the same shudder problem with my 2.5 TDI 2002. It shudders when "shifting" at lower RPM's like 1200-1400. Same happends in drive or tiptronic mode, although this is much less in tiptronic because it usually shifts at higher RPM's. However, I have no more warranty on this car, so I am wonderring what is best to do. I will appreciate all advises.

And yes, VAG diagnostic computers reports error 18149 - Clutch pressure adaptation at limit.

1. Shell I try just to replace this 5-plates clutch with 7-plates clutch? Is there some gearbox computer software upgrade needed also? I am not sure I can do this kind of service in my country (Serbia), though. Official dealer told me about some official company repairing just automatic gearboxes, but these guys told me they don't repair multitronic, just tiptronic. Does anyone know some service in Hungary or Bulgaria able to do this? Otherwise, I supose the closest good service is in Austria. Can someone tell me if this completely removes the problem and what is approximate price for the repairment?

2. Or shell I just buy a new multitronic gearbox which costs 6500 euros here in Serbia. This is official dealers price and I have to return to them my old gearbox. Is it possible to get this cheaper in some other surrounding country (Hungary, Bulgaria, Romania, Austria)?

3. Another solution is to buy another used multitronic gearbox, approx. 1800 euros, but then how I know how long it will last? And I even don't know if it already has seven plates clutch or is it old version with five plates clutch.

4. Or to switch to manual gearbox and finish with the problems? I can buy used manual gearbox for approx. 800 euros. Total cost of manual gearbox and all other parts (pedals, handle, ...) including changing in service would be approx. 1500 euros.

5. Finally, is it possible to put some other kind of automatic gearbox (tiptronic) into this car?

Please help, I am desperate with this problem.
