Safety incident date:
Jan 05, 2002
Location:
Wilmington, MA

engine coil failed on 2002 a4 1.8t at 10,600 miles. per audi, replacement part is on national backorder for approximately 2 weeks. indicates that this is a more widespread problem than audi is admitting. when coil fails, car becomes unsafe and undrivable; engine barely has any power. huge safety issue for driver and other cars on the road should the coil fail while car is in use. audi is not proactively replacing all ignition coils when a vehicle presents with one failed coil. audi would not provide price quote to me for replacing remaining coils in the vehicle at my expense (also, they have no available parts to do this, advising that they only have supply to replace failed coils). i do not believe this car is safe to drive until all coils are replaced. please demand that audi research this problem and initiate a recall to repair all impacted vehicles. dealer advises that they are seeing increase in number of vehicles presenting with failed coils.

the vehicle has been in the shop 8 times for misfiring of the fuel injectors. not one attempt has been successful at solving the problem. on one occasion, the car accelerated by itself. on another, the engine continued to run after the key was removed from the car. on another, the car reprogrammed the keys and would not allow me to start the car. on two occasions the car's engine stopped while putting the car into reverse. audi in miami, fl and in alexandria, va have failed to find the cause of these problems and have "never heard" of such complaints. despite these problems, audi consumer relations refuses to replace the car and therefore, i am forced to file under florida lemon law. this is a disgrace on behalf of audi and because of these problems and audi on the corporate level, i would never buy another audi nor recommend it to anybody else. *jb
