the front rotors on the 1998 audi a8 warp after very short usage. we have complained to the dealer and they have resurfaced the rotors, and the problem quickly re-occurs. this causes mild to severe steering wheel oscillation under moderate braking, causing the driver to lift up on brakes. audi dealer, and manufacturer should replace components with adequate disc such that there is no reoccurrence. can cause extended stopping distances and steering errors. *ak

when traveling at speed of 50 mph or greater in very heavy rain, there is an initial delay while braking (0.5 sec-1 sec) when brakes don't have an effect. pushed the pedal and nothing happened for the initial delay. then, abruptly the car brakes. also, there is a lack of splash shields on the front rotors on the model year 98 (model year 2000 has it). the rotors have water on them and it takes a while for that to be evacuated. *ak

in searching for complaints filed for 2001 audi a4's i noticed a number related to very poor braking in wet weather. i experienced the same problem with my 2001 a4. audi does have a solution for this problem. the rotor backing plates must be replaced with a different design. when i brought it into the dealer for routine service and mentioned the problem no one in the dealership was familiar with the problem. a factory rep. was visiting the dealership at the time and was familiar with the problem. he ordered new backing plates which, i am told, can only be ordered by a factory rep. it took 3 months for the parts to reach the dealership. i haven't had the problem since the new backing plates were installed.*ak

we have an audi alroad vin wauyp54b71n165228 which we purchased new in 2001. it has approximately 40,00 miles on it. it has needed new brake rotors at aprox.25-29000 miles and again at 39000 miles, because of brake vibrations during routine stops at those times. it not driven agressively and i feel that the brakes for this car are not adequate due to manufactures mismatching the brakes to the vehicle. the dealer has stated that they have had to replace brake rotors frequently for other clients with the same model of automobile. this is a safety issue of great concern to me as it seems that the brakes are inadequate for this car needing replacement at a frequency that is unacceptable.*ak
