Title: 2011 A4 Quattro 7spd s-tronic service
Post by: Long Black on January 30, 2018, 09:09:53 pm
Can someone clear this up for me once and for all!!!! I have had various prices and opinions on this. I have the local dealership quote approx $750 for the service, a transmission company quote $450, my usual mechanic quote over $900 and another tells me it has a lifetime fluid. WTF!!!! I am getting paranoid as the car now has 80k on the clock and while the transmission is as smooth as silk, I don't want to end up with a huge bill down the track. I do have a after market warranty, but as I use the car for work any failure is a loss of transport and loss of earnings. I would really appreciate a accurate and knowledgeable reply on this issue.

The guy saying it has lifetime fluid is on mushrooms. I'm not up with current DSG servicing costs, but $900 sounds ridiculous - I got the DSG, haldex, both diffs, and the engine serviced for that (a VW but you get the idea). $450 sounds in the right ballpark.

$750 isn;t too far off i would say, seem to recall I paid $680 from Achibald's for my service recently on a 2010 A4 2.0TFSI
