i leased a 2008 audi a6, less then a year ago. audi has had my car now 3 times for a problem with the intake valves and carbon deposits. they have been unable to fix the problem and refuse to admit there is a problem with the car. it has been in the shop over the past 6 months for 15 days. i have had to continue paying for the car when it is un-drivable. i also paid for audi care upfront when i leased the car, and the level of care is pathetic. on the audi forums, there are many a6 and a4 owners having the same problem. this should be a federal recall. audi of north america has been impossible to deal with. they do not stand behind their product. as a consumer, why do i have to pay for a product that is unusable? *tr

i have had a lot of problems with my audi 2000 a6 2.7 turbo emissions system. i was told i had a bad catalytic converter at 90,000 and they said it was not under warranty. i looked on the internet and found hundreds of complaints about the audi's catalytic converters. why do they only last 80,000 to 90,000 miles? then we have to pay $3,000.00 to fix it to pass the california smog tests? that is not fair. *tr

audi 3.2 engine on a 2007 audi a6 (and same engine on a4 and other models) hesitates during acceleration, especially from a stand-still, such as a stop sign. dealer states that the powertrain is designed this way, and that it is either the fsi engine which has a carbon buildup, or the cvt transmission. either way, the hesitation and 2-3 second delay is problematic when at 4-way stops, or when making a left turn in front of oncoming traffic. the delay can lead to accidents. also, there is a lot of info web about the fsi engines stalling from this issue (ie carbon buildup). *tr

i am writing about my 2004 a6 avant, which has 78,000 miles. at a recent oil service at an independent garage, it was suggested that there was a problem with the catalytic converters. exhaust was leaking from both sides, i was told. i took the car to my audi dealer, where they checked the exhaust system. the mechanic who examined the car concurred that the catalytic converters needed to be replaced. under a federally mandated warranty, the catalytic converters are covered for eight years or 80,000 miles. yet the dealer has declined to cover replacement because the "check engine" light was not on. i was given a repair estimate of $2,400. *tr
