Now isn't that funny.
Cartridge systems were such a pain in the 50's and 60's cars that they made conversion to spin on units and now they are doing this once again??

Pretty hard to diagnose transmission ills from this distance. Just a WAG--I would scan the car for any transmission trouble codes. Maybe a faulty shift solenoid or maladjusted throttle valve cable. You'd have to investigate how the transmission gets its speed/load information.

How long has it been since the last transmission service? I wouldn't "flush" it under any circumstances though. Just change the filter and fluid in the pan. If the filter is very dirty it can cause a load of problems.

So I wanted to ask everyone their opinions or thoughts on the reliability of Audi's and the maintenance costs of them. I am looking to buy a used Audi, undecided on make, produced from 2000-2005. I have heard a lot of negative things about Audi's reliability and their extremely high maintenance costs. I really just do love the look of Audi's and so I am still exploring purchasing one. However, I was wondering if members of the forum had opinions if certain models from 2000-2005 were considered more reliable and had lower maintenance costs. Any and all opinions would be much appreciated.
