I found some problem with the transmission when turning car in very low speed. Sometimes a huge vibration would happen, I guess it might be the transmission problem. I just got my a4 for a month...

Yes, that's exactly the same problem as mine. Have you gone to the dealership to diagnose the problem?

I've got 2012 A4 Avant 2 weeks ago. Will take it to a dealer tomorrow to check what's wrong with the trasmission:
1. it jerks when shiffs in traffic on low speed from 0 to 1 gear
2. it has delays in changing the gear when going up the hill

Mine also has similar problem. But it jerks from 0-2 gear I believe. Also, when I brake, in low speed, it jerks significant from 2-0 gear (or even maybe from 3-0).

Finally, I fugured that the transmission bumps, when shiffting from 2nd to 3rd gear. It's now at the dealler, will post later the result. First time they didn't fixed it. Took it right back. The bump is really significant, so they can deny it.

I have a 2011 A4 with 1,800 miles. Automatic transmission - SAME THING. Feels like there is a lurching just when you take foot off brake pedal at very low speed and just before you press gas at a very low speed. I also had a rattling sound near driver's side. Asked dealer about rattling and they fixed it - said related to EPS. I have to take in again to discuss lurching. This is frustrating. Any diagnosis on the lurching??

I am considering buying an Audi A4 and am concerned with the threads I have read abou the transmission issues. Is this problem with the manual or automatic transmission? Has the dealers been able to figure out what the problem is? Or is it a defect in the car itself?

Marko, my local dealer contacted Audi and figured that on my new A4 Avant the Mechatronic supposed to be replaced. After they've done it, the transmission runs smood as it should.

I have a 2011 A4 and am intrigued by your posts about the abrupt shifting in gears 1-2, or 2-1 at slow speeds. I purchased the car with 7600k on it, and have taken it to the dealer four times for this issue. They updated the software the first time, and the last time drove the car, deleted the software, reinstalled it, forced an adaptation, then drove it with the Audi regional rep. With each service visit, the service manager was unable to feel the shift issues I have described. I have not driven it with him, but am now starting to think that Audi feels this is normal. Has anyone had resolution to this matter other than the Mechatronic? I will inquire about that with the dealer.
