abs system was unable to stop the car for 30 feet, while i kept pressing the brakes, as required, and felt the vibration. seven feet before i was about to hit the car in front of me, i re-applied the brakes ( removed my foot and braked again) and then the car stopped within inches from the rear of the car ahead of me. road conditions were slippery. this is the second time that this audi a-4 model does not stop at all when brakes are applied consistently, as requires under the abs system

the brakes on my car are very suspect in rain or snow conditions. i dread a panic stop. i must pre-apply brake pressure in plenty of time to be able to stop when i need to when it is wet outside. i don't mean after driving through a puddle. i'm talking just general wet road conditions.

the brake pedal would go to the floor with very little braking. you could pump-up the pedal, but if you applied steady pressure it would go to the floor. at a light, if you kept the automatic transmission in drive, the pdeal would go to towards the floor until the car started to move forward at idle. the dealer could not duplicate the problem. the problem has not reoccurred. *ak

brakes do not appear to work at all for 1-2 seconds after application. then they work with reduced efficiency and finally (after heating up) work normally. if one side dries more quickly on applying brakes, car pulls side-to-side lightly but noticably. i must apply my brakes regularly to dry them when it rains and have irritated drivers behind me who believe i am "playing games" with them. *mjs

my audi has wonderful brakes in dry road conditions. however initial braking in wet conditions results in a few seconds of diminished braking capacity which almost resulted in an accident. this seems to have been reported by many a4 owners as internet forums like www.a4.org have many complaints similar to this. please do not confuse my observation with reduced braking performance in wet weather, for this is obvious. this condition is rather unique to the audi, as my wife's '98 honda accord v-6 ex does not exhibit this characteristic given similar road conditions. my audi dealer did not indicate that my a4 was part of any braking recall campaign.

problem is major braking delay in rain (worse with heavy rain). when push on pedal, get no braking action for 1-3 seconds, then brakes act normal. pedal feels firm/normal. seems like there is water sheeting on the rotors; brakes have to wipe water off before get any braking. this is the absolute worst case of this phenomena i have felt in 30 years, 750,000 miles of driving. dealer informed at routine service, could find nothing wrong.

brake application on wet highway induced an uncontrollable spin. the spin resulted in severe impact with a guard rail causing front-end damage so severe as to prevent the driver door from opening. the supplemental restraint system failed to deploy even after severe frontal impact.
