drc suspension leak - required two trips to dealer to fix it due to bad valve installed the first time - drc was audi's suspension that was on the rs6 and rs4 cars. these appeared to be problems with the system in terms of # of failures ,and if the dealers could adequately fix the problem, the car could be unsafe to drive if the shocks failed on a longer trip. *ak

my 2003 audi rs6 has a drc issue, which involves my shock absorbers leaking fluid and is creating a bouncing effect that is getting worse and worse. the vehicle has an uneasy and unsafe feel at low and high speeds, almost like the car is on ice skates and meandering all over the road. after reading many forums, it can be concluded that 77% or more of the 2003 rs6 owners have and are experiencing drc failures that are resulting in huge repair costs ( for vehicles out of warranty). i called the audi exchange in highland park illinois, and the cost to repair these inherent leaking systems is $2200 per axle. *tr

dynamic ride control (drc) is the suspension used on high-end audi sports cars (usually the r designation of the audi series: rs4, rs6, r8) it is very important to note that the r series is a lower volume production (there are less than 1,200 rs6's in the us) however the unpredictable and dangerous handling of the car coupled with volume and frequency of drc failures is unacceptable. many owners have had their suspensions replaced 2-6 times during the warranty period. my suspension components have been replaced 2.5 times. it is also important to note that most essential components in the suspension have to be replaced and will cost well over $12,000. 1. events leading up to the failure: occurs during normal driving conditions 2. failure and its consequences: extremely unpredictable and dangerous handling of the car over uneven terrain (man hole covers, small cracks will send the car drifting into other lanes) 3. what was done to correct the failure: components have been replaced by the dealership under warranty (now 2.5 times). *tr

the drc fails. originally the car felt slippery on occasions. not always. dealer never found anything. once the warranty expired then they said the shocks were leaking and the drc is out in the front and the rest of them will go bad too. cost is at least $2,900 and could go up to over $6,000 if they fix everything, including labor. *tr
