Transmission hiccup??

#1
So I've got a 2018 S3, 15k miles and I'm having an infrequent and weird occurrence where the transmission will slip out of gear and free revs till I let off the accelerator and then it re-engages. it's happened in 'manual mode' and auto (I don't drive in dynamic). yesterday it happened while I was trying to reverse up a steep incline which was very concerning as it allowed me to roll 3 feet almost into a parked car.
Anyone have a similar experience?

Hopefully he got is sorted out in 5 months. Doesn't sound good but at least it would be covered. Never experienced anything like that with mine.

as a quick diagnosis, it sounds like he needs to check the fluid levels. i believe there are two items he will need to check. at that point its actually a good idea to do a trans fluid change and haldex fluid change as well. there is a filter involved with this process too.
