this car seems to have a serious problem during wet braking. after numerous occurrences, i was forced to spend $400 to replace the stock pads that may cause this problem. with the new brake pads, no re-occurrence yet. manufacturer seems inattentive to this. perhaps nhtsa can contact manufacturer regarding this issue as i'm not the only owner to experience this. *ak

wet braking problem - during rain brake efficiency falls to an unacceptable level. brake shoes slip on the disc and do not provide sufficient braking. abs does not activate which means that tires do not even try to lock. this makes me to believe that the problem is really in the shoe/disc engagement.

multitude of probs. w/ almost every aspect (brakes, engine valves, oil light stays on, rain leaks, bad wheel bearings, etc.) of this car. most frustrating has been rude and incompetent service by audi dealer. after an expensive repair to the rear wheel bearings the dealer said that although not all the noise was gone, the car was safe enough to drive to calif.,(we live in nj). we did not believe the dealer because a loud grinding noise remained and took it to another shop where both front control arms were found to be damaged. we were advised not to drive the car as it was not safe to do so . *ak

two vehicles in front of my car on highway came to a stop; i applied brakes, pressing all the way to the floor of the car, and nothing happened - the car did not slow down and the abs did not engage, despite there being loose sand and salt on the road surface. i rear-ended the vehicles resulting in substantial damage to my car (over $10,000 to repair) and the car i hit (unknown cost covered by my insurance company). my car spent 2 months in the shop having the accident damage repaired. when i picked it up, i tested the brakes and they were very "soft" - i had to press the brake pedal all the way to the floor to get the car to stop, even though i was going no more than 10 mph. the abs did not engage that time either. i returned the car to the dealer to fix the brakes. they kept it all day and told me that nothing needed to be done. however, when i tested the brakes again, in the same spot i had tested them before, the brakes worked well and the abs engaged. on october 31, 2003, the dealership (bernardi audi, 521 worcester road, natick ma; 508-651-9980) serviced the vehicle and supposedly replaced the font and rear brake pads and rotors.*ak

front brake failure. out of four pad/shoes, 3 pads physically separated off of their respectivie shoes. one of the three actually came out during driving. when this occured, i temporarily lost braking ability as the brake pedal went to the floor without providing any decelaration. car needed to be towed to the dealership as it became usafe to drive. the remaining pad/shoe that was not separated was in reaonable condition measuring 7.7mm (out of 10mm). the two remaining separated pads are chipped showing major delamination and major degredation. remaining pads & shoes have been saved. brake pads/shoes & rotors were replaced by ira audi 97 andover street danvers, ma 978-739-8806 this appears to be a catastrophic product failure once the pad lets loose completely. events leading up to failure: about a week before, i was hearing a thunk sound when the car would change from reverse to forward motion. this occured only after the vehicle was sitting overnight.
