at 2,200 miles, a headlight warning light came on, and i took my car to the dealership. i was told that a mouse had climbed into my engine, built a nest out of the hood insulation, and chewed through wires. audi refused to cover any damages. this incident cost me $1,400. i have parked in the same spot of my underground garage for 3 years, and this never happened to my previous car. i feel audi should be held responsible for damages due to poor construction of the car's undercarrige.*ak

possible design defect in the 2008 audi tt roadster. on october 18, 2008 i was on a suburban street and unwittingly drove over what i believe was a small rock. the latter unalarmingly banged into the bottom of the car. a few blocks later i pulled into my friend?s driveway, parked, and went inside. five minutes later i came out and found that the car?s entire oil reservoir had spilled out onto the driveway. i phoned fred baker audi service, and within an hour the car was being inspected by the mechanic team. i want to make it clear that i have no problem with the excellent customer service provided by fred baker porsche audi. here is what concerns me: audi mechanics explained to me that the screw that secures the pan had punctured the oil pan because it is too long and not protected. however unusual this occurrence was, i believe that audi should have protectors over the screws so that they are not driven into the oil pan if a rock hits the undercarriage of the car. *tr

audi a5 - 2010 models. these cars come with faulty lower control arms and bushings which results in shaking in driving from 60mph to 70mph. i just bought a brand new car yesterday to be exact, the entire drive home the car shook violently, this type of shaking can and will cause accidents, a full failure of control arms will result in death. audi has not conducted a mass recall as of yet, i believe they are waiting for a few deaths and a mass protests and intervention from federal government before doing something. http://forums.audiworld.com/showthread.php?p=23890501#post23890501. *tr

this is a design defect. the side mirrors are too large and placed in a location on the window that creates a blind spot and in particular the driver's side there are instances when you can not see a car coming at you from the left, or of you are turning left you cannot see if there is an island. while we have not had an accident, it is a hazard and should be rectified. this has given rise to a number of near accidents and i have tried to get audio to listen to me. *tr

parking brake disengaged on 3 occasions: button popped off parking brake handle, as if shot from a gun, and car rolled backward. 1st instance was prior to august 2012 but no damage because i was still in the car and stopped it. 2nd instance in aug. 2012 car rolled backward into another vehicle in a parking lot, resulting in damage to my rear bumper and extensive damage to other vehicle, which was parked. 3rd instance on 5/11/13, car rolled backward down driveway. i tried to get in the car to stop it, but was not able to stop it until the driver door was caught and ripped past its normal maximum opening, extensively damaged. in aug. 2012 after the 2nd incident, the emergency brake was checked by audi dealer, who said they could glue the button back on but reported nothing wrong with the parking brake apparatus. rear brakes were replaced as they were worn and dealer said the parking brake engaged the rear brakes and the worn brakes could have caused the failure. car has received all required maintenance from the same audi dealer. i am sole owner of car. after 5/9/13 incident, dealer refused to acknowledge any known defect, denied responsibility for damage, did not offer any sort of compensation for damage to vehicle(s) or to repair brake. *tr

Location:
Mableton, GA

the 2008 audi a8l was involved in a rolling rear-end collision while starting to move at a stop sign. velocity was less than 5 mph. minor collision with no deployment of airbags and no damage to the car ahead. the a8l drove normally after the collision. inspection at the body shop revealed stress fracture and bending of the frame. car was declared a total loss. it is unacceptable that a full size premium sedan should suffer catastrophic failure of the frame at a low speed collision. a high speed collision would have provided no protection to the occupants of the vehicle. multiple contacts made with audi usa via ups letter, email, telephone, twitter and facebook. audi usa refuses to provide any crash test data on the a8 which is very concerning. i request the nhtsa to investigate if this car is safe. *tr

the 2009 audi a4 convertible rear window's adhesive on my car (and others, according to internet/youtube postings) is becoming detached from the top. the only choice owners have is to purchase a new convertible top. dealers charge between $4500-$6000. private body shops charge approx. $1600+. while researching the issue, i discovered that it is a relatively common problem with audi convertibles, as confirmed by the audi service rep who informed me of the issue during a service visit. if that is the case, audi should hold the adhesive company responsible for repair, not the audi customer. purchasing an entirely new top is unreasonable and unfair. my request: audi usa should issue a recall, whether the car is still under warranty or not, at no charge to its customers. should recoup costs from the adhesive manufacturer. at the very least, customers, at the point of sale, should be warned of the possibility of the defect that happens soon after purchase. *js

i purchased a certified preowned audi q5 last march 2013. the vehicle was running fine. no problems or concerns. i took the vehicle to an audi dealer in february 2014 for an annual service and also in march 2014 for my yearly inspection/emissions testing. on april 2014, i had loss the vehicle due to an unknown fire that had started in the car. yes, my car was engulfed in fire! prior to this fire, i had no problems or messages on my dashboard or smelled smoke while i had drove the car. the car was running fine up until that day. i have no idea what happened to my vehicle. the insurance company had investigated this vehicle, and they stated that arson was not the blame for the fire. they r/o an electrical issue that might of been the cause of the fire. the insurance company had also researched recalls and manufacturer defects, and they claimed there were no issues. i am completely stunned about this incident. the car was parked all day, and i just can't believe out of nowhere that the car had caught on fire. i've been in contact with the dealer where i purchased the vehicle, and they are as shocked as i am about what happen. hopefully, i'll get an explanation as to why the vehicle had mysteriously caught on fire. *tr
