Safety incident date:

Chicago, IL

the problem i am experiencing is analogous to a recall already announced for the audi a6: nhtsa recall no. 00v-147, vw recall no. ur **la i have a 2000 audi s4 with 64,000 miles. i recently received my car back from a 64,000 mile service. my gas gauge had indicated i had at least a quarter tank of gas left, and my trip computer indicated i had more than 60 miles until empty. i was on the highway when the car started sputtering. at first, i didn't know what the problem was. luckily, i was able to turn through 3 lanes of traffic with no power and get into the emergency lane. i checked my car, and there were no obvious signs of the problem. i happened to notice that my trip computer miles counter (which i reset on every fill-up), was reading higher than would be typical. it was at that point that i suspected i had run out of gas. i called aaa, requesting a gallon of gas. indeed, this solved the problem. i was fortunate in my situation. i doubt others who also experience this problem would be as lucky. i've already heard many stories on car forums, etc. of owners having 'close calls' because they've run out of gas when they don't expect to. this problem has been linked to the sending unit audi uses in these models. there have been many failures, and it is all too common a problem that needs to be addressed. it is absolutely identical to the sending unit failures on the 2000 a6, so i don't understand why it wouldn't be addressed on the 2000 a4/s4 (b5 platform) or any other model that uses the same unit. *la

i noticed that my fuel gauge was incorrect. i took car to the dealer and was told there was a bad fuel sender unit. the repair was estimated to cost $1000. i took the car to an independent mechanic who confirmed the problem but told me there had been a recall on the car for this problem. he gave me a printout of the recall notice, which had been issued in 2001. i spoke with audi of america and was told that i would have to confirm with the dealer that this recall work had been done on my car. in the database, the dealer found that my car had been checked for this problem in sept 2001 (before i purchased it) and it had been determined that no action was necessary. i spoke again with audi of america and after their representative had "researched" the issue, i was told that the correct fuel sending unit must have been in my car or they would have replaced it. so i am left with a nonfunctioning fuel gauge and no help from audi on fixing this safety problem.

the fuel sending unit can often report incorrect information, causing owners to occasionally run out of gas without prior notice. fuel gauge has a tendency to jump from full to empty within minutes. audi has already recalled their a6 model for the same defect, yet does not want to recall the tt even though they share the same part number for the fuel sending unit and exhibit the same problem. *tr
