Audi A5 2013 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Audi A5 2013 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Should I buy extended warranty?
There’s good and bad news here, John. The transmission in the car you’re looking at is code-named DL501 and it’s a wet-clutch design. That’s distinct from some of the dry-clutch designs also used by the VW Group which were much more troublesome with a high rate of failures. That’s the good news.
The bad news is that even with its more durable wet-clutch design, the DL501 has also been known to suffer what appear to be inherent problems. Mainly, those relate to the mechatronic unit (more or less the transmission’s central nervous system) and premature wear in the clutch plates themselves.
The car you’re looking at has covered a very low distance, so it should be okay for now, but there’s no telling what dramas might crop up with years and kilometres. The problems will likely be worse if the car has not been serviced by the book, so check the service handbook for evidence of this. Even then, it’s a bit of a gamble.
But the only thing I’d stay further clear of than a DSG transmission would be an extended warranty from a car-yard. These are specifically written to exclude the things you’re most likely to need them for. Have a close look at the fine print and you might find that the sort of transmission problems you’d expect in this car will be specifically excluded.Show more
E10 unleaded in 2013 Audi A5
Yes, you can use E10 in your A5, but because E10 packs less energy than 95-octane premium unleaded the performance of your car will be diminished. The difference can be between one and eight percent, so you will consume more E10 to achieve the same performance. You won't do your engine any harm by using it, so try a tank of E10 and measure the difference in consumption that you get.Show more
