this part isn't dangerous at failure but is very noisy and seem to fail at anytime after 15,000 miles. once repaired they may or may not fail again. its about $1000 to fix them if not under warantee. i believe owners should have an extended warantee on this item.

i am reporting a safety problem, not an accident or a parts failure. the car came equipped with high performance tires. they are bridgestone potenza steel belted radials no 225/45 r17. on any snow the car becomes unstable. it will not climb even the slightest grade. stopping is problematical; it slides every which way. i called audi of north america and was told the correction is to buy snow tires. i was given a number of a dunlop tire to fit my rims. it is called a winter sport and costs $750.00 for four tires. it is inconceivable to me that a car is sold in the midwest with the only method of controlling winter driving is to buy an additional set of tires. i could understand someone wanting better traction in the winter doing so, but not just to be able to drive the car on slippery roads. *ak

during wet weather braking, the front disc brakes seem to fail. the cars front end seems to slide to the left approximately 4 feet upon braking. this happens only in the rain, with no adverse effects during dry weather. i have contacted audi, who then referred me to the dealership. the dealership has stated that audi will not warranty the correction, since they do not know how widespread the problem is. however, i have noticed a large amount of complaints on your website, and on the audiworld website. i submit that there is a defect in the front braking system of the a4 during wet weather driving, and that this defect could and will cause an accident. even thought the car did stop, it required steering correction to put it back into the lane. the manufacturer should acknowledge that there is a defect and it should be covered by the manufacturer. if there is an accident, audi will be held responsible and can be sure the reputation of their cars will suffer again. please investigate this problem as it is potentially dangerous. *ak
