A3 Sportsback 8Y - Loss of Power during Driving


New Member
Hi all,

I have bought my new Audi A3 8Y 35TFSI auto transmission for few months (around 2,800 km mileage). Recently I have encountered sudden loss of power during driving.

I lifted off the throttle when I was driving at 30-60 km/h. I tried to re-accelerate however the speed did not go up. The tachometer shows the engine was revving up.

The car was therefore slowing down and eventually came to a stop. It was confirmed that the speed limiter wasn’t activated and the car was in “D/S” Gear. No fault code and warning light was found.

Does anyone encountered similar issue? Thanks everyone!
