prestige imports was wonderful! they got audi of america to pay for transportation and repair of my car. elk mountain motors ( my local audi dealer) lied to me and said it wasn't leaking. fuel was spraying on the firewall, exhaust manifold, and turbo - a clear fire danger.

the fuel line on my audi s6 was clearly leaking fuel inside the engine compartment. it is my understanding that this is a very common occurence for this particular model of audi. my car happened to be covered under an extended warranty at the time and the part was replaced. it is my understanding, however, that this is an extremely common failure on this particular model of car and that audi is failing to recognize that this is a defective part worthy of a recall. some owners are being forced to pay for the repair of this safety related part out of their own pocket. why a car manufacturer is not willing to step up to the plate for a defective part that runs the risk of a fire is beyond me. i think this is an excellent case of something where nhtsa should step in before someone gets killed by a fire.

the fuel line was found to be leaking gasoline rather heavily. the leak occured in close proximity to the exhaust and turbocharger. the failed fule line was previously replaced in january 1997 at about 61,622 miles for the same failure. the car was examined by dealer personnel for complaints of gasoline smell and leaking fuel line on two prior occasions in 1996. the initial failure was repaired under an extended warranty. the second failure (1999) was repaired at the manufacturer's expense, as i understand it.
