when the car was about a year old, the entire airbag system had to be replaced, the repair facility noted to me that i was lucky to bring it in when i did, as it was at risk for spontaneous deployment. additional problems included an oil pump failure ($750) at about the three year mark; and occasional sudden lurching/rpm revving or sudden onset of a 'lag' in power, which the dealer noted when i brought it in but could do nothing about. i have also had problems with the fuel indicator gauge being grossly inaccurate - indicating i have used only a quarter tank of fuel to drive 350 miles. however, the most bothersome ongoing problem is four or five trips to the dealer to repair a non-functioning cruise control system. each time they have 'replaced the vacuum hoses' but this 'repair' will begin to fail again later that same day. the system will either fail to engage altogether, or it will be engaged during highway driving, then within a few minutes, the speed will continually decrease until i have to manually disengage the system and turn it off. i reported this to audi of america's corporate customer service (very friendly and helpful) who helped me arrange another service visit, but the problem has never been resolved. cruise control has never worked and i'm giving up on it ever working. i just have to pretend that i don't have it, which is very annoying during highway travel. *nlm

i have recently experience the exact same sudden acceleration with my audi a6 quattro. the temperature outdoors was very cold and i was traveling up a hill when the car kept accelerating on its own. while applying pressure to the brakes the car continued to accelerate. luckily i was able to pull the car off the road and shifted into park. upon placing the car in park the tachometer red lined. after taking it to the garage the technician determined he could not find anything wrong the automobile. the following week my husband drove the car and experienced the exact same thing. again our car is in the garage and the technicians are trying to determine a cause. to date, they have been unsuccessful in finding the problem.

buzzing noise in back of car turned out to be faulty fuel pump. after several days in shop the service rep told me that there was another problem -- a "burnt" or "corroded" wire near the fuel pump and fuel tank that could be a "safety issue." that was 3 days ago. still no update from the dealership. i am wondering if others have had problems with the fuel pump on the audi s4. i'm particularly worried because exposed wires near a fuel tank sounds like a serious safety issue.

i was driving on the freeway when my a4 1.8 lost power...i barely made it to the shoulder and almost got hit by a car who must not have notice my speed or that my hazards lights were on...i was towed to the dealership and according to the service department it was a faulty fuel filter that caused the fuel pump to fail. both part were replaced, the car was supposedly test driven to ensure it was operating properly...however, a month later i had another failure (not related to the fuel system). *nm

tl*the contact owns a 2003 audi a6. approximately one year ago, the contact smelled a strong odor of gasoline whenever he placed fuel in the vehicle. he also noticed fuel leaking on the garage floor. he assumed that he was placing too much fuel into the vehicle. in the beginning of june of 2008, the contact made sure to fill the vehicle to the correct amount to avoid any fuel leakage. within half an hour of parking the vehicle, the contact smelled a strong gasoline odor and noticed a much larger puddle of gasoline underneath the vehicle. he called the dealer and was advised to have the vehicle towed; however, the contact refused and drove the vehicle to the dealer. a diagnosis was performed and they stated that there was a crack in the check valve of the fuel tank that could not be repaired. the entire fuel tank needed to be replaced. the contact proceeded with the repairs, which were completed within a week. the failure mileage was 38,000 and current mileage was 40,000. updated 07/16/08. *lj updated 07/16/08

was driving home from work which is a 30 mile commute. upon parking on my driveway, my car seemed to stall and immediately shut down which was awkward because the parking break was on and the car was on neutral, giving no reason for the car to stall. i tried to restart and the car ran but only for a few seconds then shut down. i towed it to the dealership the next day and they found the problem to be a faulty gas pump. dealer replaced pump and car was back to normal. seeing the amount of complaints with fuel pumps, i also agree that the 2004 model should be added to the list of recalls. *tr

heard a whisping noise coming from the rear right wheel well. it got progressively louder. dealer inspected and found that the fuel pump was failing due to pieces of the fuel filter from the previous fuel pump replacement floating around in the gas tank. 1 month later, after moving to a new state, driving about 1100 miles, the sound of whisping or a card in the spokes of a bike wheel was coming from the same right rear area in front of the wheel well. the dealer in the new state said that the fuel filter needed to be replaced. *tr

fuel pump failed without warning on june 14, 2008 when i was 300 miles from home, visiting my father for father's day. my audi only had approx 44,000 miles on it at the time. i have retained the faulty fuel pump, but was charged nearly $800.00 for the repairs, including towing. i contacted audi and they refuse to do anything because their recall only covers the 2003 model, and not the 2004. audi really needs to protect their customers and offer reimbursement to those of us who have experienced this very dangerous failure. a fuel pump failure on the highway could easily lead to severe injury or even death. audi cannot claim that they are not on notice of this problem, as i have reviewed several similar complaints for this vehicle. *tr

2003 audi a4. 1.8 l turbo. while in traffic fuel pump failed and car stalled. audi has issued previously a recall for fuel pumps in 2003 a4s. however, i was told production date on my car is outside of date range of recall. date range should be expanded. recall information is provided below. recall date: aug 28, 2007 model affected: 2003 audi a4 summary: on certain vehicles equipped with 1.8l turbo, 2.8l v6, or 3.0l engines, a change in the electrical motor components in the fuel pump can lead to an inoperative fuel pump and, ultimately, stoppage of fuel supply to the engine causing it to stall. consequence: if fuel flow to the engine is interrupted, the vehicle could stall without warning and thus present a potential risk of crash. remedy: dealers will install new fuel pumps free of charge. the recall began on september 28, 20007. owners may contact vw at 1-800-222-8987 or audi at 1-800-822-2834. this recall is a supplement to a previous campaign (please see 06v017). *tr

there has been an audi recall (opened 1/31/-8, closed 5/30/08) for audi a6 models manufactured from june 2, 2001 to june 1, 2005. your nhtsa action number is pe08008, recall campaign number is 08v157000. this involves very dangerous fuel tank cracks and leaks. the problem is, i have a 2000 audi a6 with exactly the same problem, but no recall. it will cost me about $2,000 to repair, my mechanic says i'm lucky no explosion. if you will check the internet chat rooms, these problems are extensive back to 1998 models, involving plastic fuel tanks. audi tells me 'not enough complaints' of my year model to warrant recall,even though the defect seems exactly the same thing as the defect causing the recall, and is a terribly dangerous situation for audi drivers and their families. if there is a defect, there is a defect, it should not matter whether more complaints were filed for the 2001 years than mine. is safety a matter of the number of complaints, or whether the product is truly defective and dangerous. please help! thanks, ken williams.*tr
