my 1999 audi a6 avant is equipped with the cold weather package. this package includes heated seats and steering wheel. when the driver's seat heater is turned on it activates the steering wheel heater. on 12/13/02 in using this heater the steering wheel became hot enough to burn my hand and began to fill the car with smoke. it melted the foam under the leather cover. if i had not turned off the seat/steering wheel heater i believe the steering wheel would have caught fire. my independent repair shop indicates there is a short in the wheel that will require replacement. i checked an enthusiast internet site (audiworld.com) and did a search of similar problems. i found several other audi models had similar problems. ts

complaint 1) heated steering wheel would burn hands in selected locatios before turning off. dealer indicated to me they were aware of this and if i wanted it fixed would have to purchase a new steering wheel as my car was out of warranty. i feel this is a safety issue that should be handled by audi with replacement. complaint 2) rear brake pads replaced three times on car with 50,000 miles. this does not make sense as front brakes take most of wear. at my last repair on 9/22/03, it cost me $418 dollars to replace rear pads and rotors. it appears something may be of bad design with replacement 3 times in 50,000 miles for rear brakes. front replaced only once and not due to wear, but heat spotting creating noise.

1999 audi a6 avant heated steering wheel. wheel generally heats at 12, 2, 5, 7 and 10 o'clock positions. on this particular occasion, i was driving at about 45 mph with my hands at the 10 and 2 o'clock positions. i initiated a right turn that required my hands on the 12 and 7 o'clock positions. however, these two spots were too hot to hold. my instant reaction to the high heat was to jerk my hands from the wheel. for that instance, my focus shifted from driving to the heat of the wheel. vehicle control was maintained. no accident.
