first the report on door handles. the handles are made from pot metal and over time stress crack. you may simply try to open the door one day and the handle literally comes off in your hand. if the vehicle were in an accident, it would be impossible to open the door from the outside. v.w. rabbits and golf's were also prone to this. second report: failed transaxle seals can throw transaxle oil on catalytic converter and other hot surfaces, creating a serious fire hazzard. *ak

Volkswagen Of America, Inc.
Safety incident date:
Feb 08, 2000
Location:
Abingdon, MD

after starting my vehicle and attempting to turn on my headlights (incident occured approx. 8:00 pm), i noticed that my headlights, and tail lights were inoperable. i also notiiced that my climate control system, warning/indicator lights (lights during normal start-up), outside ambient temperature gauge, door locks, and my turn signals were all inoperable. i then proceeded to turn off my engine to trouble shoot the problems when i found that i was unable to turn the key in the ignition (to the off position). i verified that my automatic transmision shifter was in park "p". the engine was finally shut (1.5 hrs later) down by pulling fuel pump fuze. dealer replaced ignition switch (# vwn 4ao 905 849 b), this corrected all problems. this problem is very simular to the 1994/1995 audi 90 recall (id #96v017000) of the ignition switch. my vehicle was manufactured in feb. 1996 which is two months following the last recalled audi 90 (mfd. recall jan 94 to dec 95). audi inc . would not reimburse me for this repair. please investigate: this part (ignition switch for the 90 and a4 appear to be the same: i verified this at one dealer) causes very similiar malfunctions in the a4 as the audi 90 had in 1994/1995 vehicles. note: some audi a4 owners may not have reported to nhtsa because warranty covers part up to 50,000 miles. please verify how many ignition switches have been replaced in the a4 via dealers. if this issue prompted a recall of the audi 90 (recall: 1996) , my vehicle and possibly others has just experienced a similiar if not worse problem (can not shut of engine, no headlight/tail lights etc. using normal technique, engine also began to overheat). this is potentially very dangerous. i fortunately had the know how to deal with this situation safely, but all a4 owners are not technically inclined. please contact me for more information/clarification.

the door locks and alarm system failed when my car was stolen from the ikea parking lot in elizabeth, new jersey. thieves punched or drilled a hole in the driver door between the door handle and door lock and were able to open the door and disable the alarm system at the same time. after breaking the steering column, starting the car, and outrunning police, the car was recovered via lojack with all my personal belongings gone. audi should adress this issue by making new cars with an improved security system and by doing something for existing owners to fix this costly and dangerous problem. other audi owners need to be made aware of this problem.*ak
