at 51,000 miles i had the catalytic converter replaced on my audi under warranty due to a broken pipe flange. i now have 102,000 on the audi and the same part is broken. audi usa will not replace or repair this part. i feel it must be a defect in the workmanship or materials since a catalytic converter should not be replaced until it is worn out and not before then. this is part of the emissions system and the epa should also know about this. *jb

i am concerned with the safety involved with the catalytic converter on my audi a6. my check engine light appeared and i took it into my local mechanic who showed the fault as the catalytic converter. i then took my vehicle to the local audi dealer where they insisted it was the oxygen sensor. i then had this replaced and audi verified that everything was correct. once again my check engine light appeared 200 miles later and i took the vehicle back to the audi dealer. i requested that they check the catalytic converter again and they insisted that it was once again the oxygen sensor. the warranty on this part is approaching the end. i asked, "if this is once again replaced and the light comes on again in a couple hundred miles, my warranty will be up, will you cover it? their response was, "if it is one mile past the warranty, we don't have to cover it." from this comment one would conclude they are giving me the run around until my warranty is up so they will not be held responsible. my concern is that audi is failing to comply with a federally mandated warranty. they simply do not want to replace the converter which is placing my life in danger considering a car can catch on fire if the catalytic converter is not working properly. *jb

i have replaced both catalytic converters on the 2001 audi allroad. the right one at 42k miles and the left one at 62k miles. the right catalytic converter has failed again at 115k. the dealer refuses to extend any warranty for the part. the dealer states that the original part is warranted for 80k miles, but the replacement part only for 12k miles or 12 months. there must be something wrong with the car or the equipment. audi should warranty a required federal emissions part much longer than just 12 months. *tr
