multitude of probs. w/ almost every aspect (brakes, engine valves, oil light stays on, rain leaks, bad wheel bearings, etc.) of this car. most frustrating has been rude and incompetent service by audi dealer. after an expensive repair to the rear wheel bearings the dealer said that although not all the noise was gone, the car was safe enough to drive to calif.,(we live in nj). we did not believe the dealer because a loud grinding noise remained and took it to another shop where both front control arms were found to be damaged. we were advised not to drive the car as it was not safe to do so . *ak

Audi A6 2000
Volkswagen Of America, Inc.
Safety incident date:
Oct 22, 2004
Location:
Menlo Park, CA

premature failure of both tie rod ends and all upper control arms in front suspension, resulting in loose steering, difficulty in maintaining lane position, and vibration in steering while driving and braking. all tie rod ends and front suspension upper control arms (4) required replacement; if left not replaced, potential for catastrophic loss of steering and/or suspension collapse if any one of the 6 affected ball joints fail. further failure of front right wheel bearing as a result of suspension play, and excessive asymmetrical wear on front tires. audi recalled all 1999 models for the identical tie rod end rubber seal failure (nhtsa campaign 99v248000), and essentially the same seal design is used on the control arms. audi only changed the tie rod design in 2003 rs6, meaning potentially all 2000-2004 a6 (and other models potentially) are affected. in addition audi increased wheel size and weight substantially on newly introduced v8 a6 in 2000, but did not uprate the suspension; the 2003 rs6 change (also a v8) is further evidence of an excess loading problem. old parts expected to be available.*ak

River Forest, IL

normal day to day driving has produced failure of two sets of front wheel bearings on this car. the original equipment made noise at about 30,000 miles and failed completely at 62,000 miles. the second set i have now are rumbling and grinding now and they have only been on the car for 20,000 miles. consequence of a wheel bearing failure is loss of control (steering) of the vehicle. this is after running a car wearing ear plugs because the bearing noise makes the interior noise is so loud there could be hearing loss from extended trips. dealer only replaced bearing after it failed and welded itself to the wheel housing. i have the fried wheel bearing from one side and the housing it welded itself to. i also still have the second set because i am running on them and they are making the same rumbling, moaning, grinding noise the first set made. *nm
