2006 Audi A3 - WAUKD78P76A- San Francisco, CA: August 2nd, 2012
I have an audi a3 2006. Several years ago (end of 2009/beginning of 2010), i started feeling and hearing a clunking noise and the car would lunge forward a few inches when approaching stop signs or red lights and downshifting from 2nd to 1st gear. This would happen periodically and has been increasing in strength. I was told by audi that it was a due to a faulty mechatronic system, which is like the brains of the car. Audi service quoted me a cost of approximately $2500 to replace the mechatronic system. I have read on many forums that this has been happening to many audi a3 owners and that they have not issued a recall for this issue. Given the frequency of the issue, i think this should be addressed by audi and recalled.

2006 Audi A4 - WAUDG98E66A- Sacramento, CA: July 22nd, 2012
The xenon headlamps will flicker then go out, most of the time individually and periodically both. This occurs at anytime and under any condition. A service letter was sent out identifying this issue and to take the car in for the repairs. However, these repairs weren't addressed due to my warranty having expired. These repairs should be addressed irrespective of warranty period for this is a major safety issue when driving at night. This is a known issue by audi owners who have these lights irregardless model year. There are hundreds of posts on the internet. A recall may be warranted not just a service announcement that doesn't cover all affected vehicles. Here is a link to google search of other audi owners' with this issue, https://www. Google.

2012 Audi Q5 - WA1CFAFP3CA- Port Ludlow, WA: July 16th, 2012
Entering my garage, about halfway in the car suddenly accelerated forward; i had my foot on the brake while entering and immediately pushed down hard, the car skidded and stopped; i immediately put the car in neutral and the engine revved up to between 4000 and 5000 rpms, and then quickly dropped back to normal idle. Just before reaching the house and the garage incident, the car momentarily speeded up and then came back to normal speed. I was going about 15 mph and it all happened so suddenly i didn't realize what had happened. It wasn't until the garage incident that i realized what had happened out on the street.

2003 Audi Tt - TRUSC28N831- Boca Raton, FL: June 26th, 2012
The vehicle has been in for replacement for the digital cluster, thermostat and cooling pump. Then i replaced the cluster for the first time 9/2011. Same day after putting in the new cluster the dealership stated it was defective because the fuel gauge would not function properly and replaced a few days later. The cluster was replaced again when the speedometer needle would not move and stayed below zero. On that same day i pick up the car and drove less than a mile and the digital cluster faded out to a blank screen. I turn around and took the car back to the dealership was inform that they will order another cluster and call me for the install which was done a few days later. Now the digital cluster is not making any warning sounds. When i press the button manually to see, if there are any problems it showed a service visit was coming up and the symbol to check the oil level and water pump. The service advisor stated this was normal to see which contradicts the car manual and another authorized dealer in a different state whom replace the cooling pump and thermostat. I took the car to the dealership and inform them that the cluster was not alarming for any services coming due or problems and the car now has a slight jerk forward when i press the brakes. There report stated differently like the car ran rough, the panel lights were flashing and the car sat for a long period of time. There diagnostic was the transmission needed to be replaced but the cluster was fine. When i pick up the car the service advisor stated the car was still in good shape no alarm except for the transmission and its was not that bad but after i got home and viewed the paperwork it showed every component on the vehicle inspection report needed further attention. I phoned the next day and the service advisor stated the technician may have made a mistake. *jb

2006 Audi A4 - WAUKG78E56A- Montreal, NY: June 23rd, 2012
Power steering fluid is draining from reservoir faster than i can put it in. This is one problem too many on my audi. The car is a 2006 a4 purchased new in march 2007 therefore 5 years and 3 mths and 60,000 miles. From what i can't read on the web, the oil is lost in the rack and pinion box. This is the fourth time at audi dealer in past 6 weeks, two electric window regulators, bearing front wheel and now power steering problem that i think will go in the 600$ to 1000$ repair. I've had many cars and since my two past audi's, i've replaced parts that i had never heard before even if i kept my previous cars 7 years and 160,000 miles. This is definitely my last german product in my yard. Audi has a nice design but that is it. You need at least two cars in the driveway to own an audi, that way you are not stuck. My dealer has quadrupled his service area, now i know the reason. *tt

2008 Audi A4 - WAUBF78E78A- Murfreesboro, TN: June 22nd, 2012
Problem: premature wear of the cam and cam follower resulting in p0087 errors. This causes the car to run very erratic, surging and bucking and a general loss of power. There is an audi tsb (technical service bulletin) on this very issue for my 2005, 2006 and 2007. This is a very wide spread problem! My 2008 audi should be covered. --- at around 60k miles the car started experiencing the dreaded premature wear of the cam lobe follower and the high pressure fuel pump lobe. The follower was replaced but the cam was not. The car was then taken to my audi mechanic and i was told this is a widespread problem and that audi had extended the warranty on the high pressure pump, cam follower and the cam to 120,000 miles and mine would be covered. When i took it to the audi dealer they did everything that had a recall and told me to try it. The problem quickly returned and i had my mechanic remove the high pressure pump and we looked at the wear on the follower and cam. The cam as well as the follower were extremely worn. I do have pictures from then and now that the cam and follower have been replaced, i have the old parts as well. Next took it back to audi dealership expecting to have this issue resolved and was told my vin was outside the extended warranty program and was not covered. They then told me i needed a cam and follower and i was given an estimate. I would audi to reimbruse me for the work i had performed. *tt

2006 Audi A4 - WAUEH78E86A- Crystal, MN: June 17th, 2012
The issue initially started with both head lights flickering and the audi dealership stated it may just be an issue with the xenon bulbs. Not long after, the passenger side headlight would flicker and go out prompting a "right head light dipped" message. This only seems to happen when the vehicle is in motion regardless of the speed. The only way to get the right head light to work again is to shut the lights off and back on. This is very dangerous especially since i am not able to pull over every time to turn the lights off and on. Until about 2 months ago, it was only the passenger side head light but it turns out the driver side light is doing the same. Twice now i have had both head lights go out completely while driving on a busy highway. There is a service bulletin tsb 2013829/3 but audi will not do a recall on the head lights. This has become a serious issue as i no longer feel safe to drive my vehicle at night.

2005 Audi A4 - WAULL44E55N- Lovettsville, VA: May 31st, 2012
The contact owns a 2005 audi a4. While driving approximately 35 mph, the driver depressed the accelerator pedal and noticed that the accelerator pedal had become stuck. The vehicle suddenly accelerated to 100 mph erroneously. The contact continued depressing the brake pedal and was able to stop the vehicle. The vehicle was not taken to the dealer for diagnostic testing or possible repairs. The driver inspected the vehicle and noticed that the floor mat retention system failed and caused the floor mat to become lodged under the accelerator pedal, causing the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 69,224.

2009 Audi A4 - WAUSF78K49N- Brooklyn, NY: May 29th, 2012
I have obtained this car as a used car. Engine oil was changed one week after i have the car at a mechanic shop. Three weeks (about 500miles driving) later, a low engine oil alarm sounded. I brought the car back to the same mechanic shop and add a quart of oil to the engine. A couple weeks later, i was driving the car to a road trip. The low oil alarm sounded again. This was in the middle of my road trip when i was driving in the highway (about 500miles since last oil addition) at about 75mph. I have to get off the high way right away and went to a local mechanic shop to top off the oil. I was told by a mechanic that this is dangerous because if i couldn? T find a mechanic shop in time to add more engine oil, the engine would have been overheated, locked, and forced to stop right away. Under this scenario, a serious collision with the cars behind or next to me might be caused if driving on the highway. Upon research, it was discovered that this abnormal amount of engine oil consumption has been a common problem/complaint in this model of car due to the defects in the piston rings. In most cases, the piston rings were replaced under the manufacturer warranty. My car is just out of warranty with 57k miles on it. The dealer should be responsible fixing this problem as it is a serious safety problem and it was defected from the manufacturer.

2004 Audi Tt - TRUSC28N241- Palisade, CO: May 29th, 2012
The contact owns a 2004 audi tt1. 8 coupe. The contact stated while driving 45 mph, the vehicle would jerk in between gears and stall. After the failure, the vehicle could not be shifted in or out of any gear. By turning the engine off and then restarting, the failure would correct itself but would recur after several minutes. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who advised the contact that they needed to replace the transmission. The manufacturer was notified of the failure who offered to buy the vehicle back but the contact refused. The failure mileage was 70,000.

2005 Audi A4 - WAUJC68EX5A- Orlando, FL: May 24th, 2012
There is a huge problem it seems with the transmission control module (tcm). Apparently most audi vehicles will have a problem with it and the repairs are costing the consumers big money. A new one from the dealer costs around 1100-1200. 00 dollars and they are used to seeing this problem and don't think its a big deal... Why should we pay if its a problem that they are aware about and ultimately comes down to a bad service by them knowing and not helping pay for a regular problem caused by them???

2002 Audi A6 - WAUJT64B92N- Orange Park, FL: May 23rd, 2012

The technician stated the transmission clutch plate would have to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 55,700.
