for several years i have been complaining of an intermittent, very strong fuel smell. audi has never been able to tell me why this occurs. it has been present transiently and it has been present for prolonged periods of time. the smell, when present, is extremely strong. this is not related to and is entirely different from the "sulfur" smell that is frequently present in the winter. on one occassion, it was present for almost a whole week after the car sat for the preceeding week without being driven. i had to keep the windows open continuously in order to avoid gagging. audi claims that my car is not part of the current recall regarding the leaking fuel injector. i would appreciate your help in discovering the cause of this problem and in remedying it finally. thank you.

Location:
Scottsdale, AZ

audi 2001 a6 2.7t tiptronic while in d transmission mode, car does not accelerate per accelerator input after using the brakes. there is a delay of about a couple of seconds before car accelerates. this happens after braking from low speeds followed by gentle acceleration and also when braking from higher speeds followed by either gentle or aggressive acceleration. often there will be a pronounced jerk when the car starts to accelerate after the delay. *la safety issue typical situation: when crossing medians to merge with traffic in the opposite direction, oncoming traffic have to brake heavily to avoid a collision because the car is unable to accelerate smartly after braking. the same crossing in previously owned audi a4 1.8t and audi a4 2.8 (both without fly by wire throttle) could be safely negotiated without any acceleration delay. this situation is unacceptable and highly dangerous in normal everyday driving. references from audiworld.com forums it is apparent that there are many owners experiencing this problem. all have the audi tiptronic transmission and fly by wire throttle system, not limited to the 2.7t model. here is the link to the latest messages http://forums.audiworld.com/a6/msgs/304185.phtml also, consumer reports have noted the delay in acceleration when testing this car. here is the link. http://www.consumerreports.org/main/detailv2.jsp?content%3c%3ecnt_id=302773&folder%3c%3efolder_id=97851&assortment%3c%3east_id=333137&bmuid=1066370138539 several other reviews in the u.s. automobile press have also noted the delay. repair local audi dealer is unable to offer a solution since their troubleshooting techniques only indicate a "no fault found" or "unable to duplicate" situation (several visits). escalation to audi headquarters elicits statements such as "working as per design, "safety feature (prevent over revving damage to engine/transmission)", and "system has to process a lot of data". *la

twice my wife encountered trucks running stop signs. our 2002 audi all road had "turbo lag" which means when she floored the gas pedal, the car hesitated and hardly moved and then, as she tried to turn at the same time, the car suddenly accelerated so hard, she almost lost control. the same thing happened to me once but i didn't need to turn at the same time. these incidents happened in 2003 and 2004. i took the car to the dealer three times but they said the car was designed to do this. i strongly feel this is a serious, dangerous safety concern on the part of all people driving this car. the "incident date" below is the last time this happened. *jb

Audi S4 1994

Safety incident date:
Jan 16, 2007
Location:
Fairfax Station, VA

there is a severe safety problem associated with the audi 94s4, other model year s cars and other audi cars with the 100 body. when the plastic part that connects the throttle body to the throttle cable breaks, the engine goes up to 7000 rpm (over red line). if in heavily congested traffic as i was, the owner risks his life or his engine. since i decided my life and that of my passengers was more important than the engine, i let the engine race and used the brake to control speed until i could safely get off the beltway and onto a side road. once there, i saw that my exhaust manifold had gotten cherry red with and could have caused a fire. these cars need immediate recall as a safety measure and the part replaced with metal. failure was without warning, car⿿s speed began to increase without warning and throttle pressure had no impact whatsoever. less skillful person would have panicked and caused severe pile-up in rush hour traffic. many other audi owners have reported the problem on the various computer lists and web sites used by audi owners. call or write for details. audi dealer was unconcerned about problem and part is not listed nor can be purchased separately. must purchase entire throttle body at cost of over $800. *nm
