I was just asking about how you drive the car, like a race car or like a grandma, because usually trannies last a long time with good maintenence and healthy driving styles. I know some sh!t the bed early due to any number of reasons also. I just looking to get you to volunteer poor driving practices, I personally didn't change my audi q7 4.2 tranny fluid until 60k miles because of confidence in audis build quality, they say it's a lifetime fill, lol. Due to all the terrible problems I ran into with it, I didn't trust their recommendations. Still shifted herky jerky in D and perfect in S, they had updated the valve body for smoother shifts in later revisions to the tranny. I wonder if that's the case with your tranny. These are all reasons for choosing my 16 x3, should have all the bugs worked, fingers crossed.
