Location:
Milwaukee, WI

i was driving the vehicle for a family vacation to nashville tn from milwaukee, and i started to notice that the rear suspension was very bouncy. i thought it may have been due to the extra weight of the luggage in the trunk, but as the vacation went on, the bounce got worse. by the time we were headed back to milwaukee, the bounce was so bad, that the car would lose control while going over rough highway. we took the car into the dealership for repairs, and were told that the suspension system had a leak in one of the rear shocks. however, because of the way that the system is designed, all four of the shocks have to be replaced in order to balance the pressure in each absorber. my car was out of service for 2 weeks, and the first time it was repaired, the mechanic stated that he did not have any training on how to fix the system. he did an admirable job, but the ride has not been the same since. the mechanic has since received training, and had to re-pressurize and replace all four shocks again. the second time the mechanic made repairs the system was better, but now the car is due for another repair on the rear suspension this week. it seems that this system is prone to leak fluid, which helps it maintain the proper pressure on all four wheels. i am worried that when my warranty is expired, i will have to replace this suspension system again, and it will be very expensive, or there will be a terrible car accident due to lack of control over rough highways. *nm

at approximately 0045 hours, saturday 06/24/2006, i was leaving work and pulling out of the parking lot. i heard a popping sound and my steering to my vehicle went sour. so i pulled over and took a look at the front wheels, thinking it was the problem. to which it was not. i continued on and the rear end was fish-tailing, so i pulled over and noticed the right rear wheel was bent at a forty-five degree angle inward. the rear control arm was broken. damages caused by this failure caused damages to the rear sway bar, and other parts internal and external. i contacted audi usa because i found out about an old recall notification. to which my family was never notified of such. i did some research and found out a range of vins that had been affected by this recall, and my vehicle fell within that range. i looked up more information within the nhtsa website and my vehicle should have been recalled by the downloaded file rcdnn-01v325-1789.pdf. after numerous attempts to find information from separate audi advocates, one tells me there is currently nothing they can do. because the recall was old and not open right now, i would need to take the vehicle and get it fix and keep the records. audi usa and world wide knew of this problem and failed to notify everyone that owned this vehicle that was to be affected. several years later not knowing of a problem from a part that has been recalled only on a few vehicles. a problem still exists to which could have resulted in serious injury or even death. *jb

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

my 2003 audi rs6 has suffered its 5th drc failure in 4 years as front shock absorbers once again leaked fluid out resulting in dangerously improper handling. if i hadn't known what was happening it could cause one to think that the race tuned suspension was working and that aggressive driving in this 450 horsepower car could have resulted in a fatal accident. audi continues to charge its customers thousands of dollars to replace this faulty system with more faulty parts as they refuse to redesign the system and opt for instead putting more faulty parts on the car which they full well know will fail again. please help us force audi to make this right before someone loses their life as a result. it may have already happened but nobody has connected it yet. there is a website for rs6 owners that has taken a poll, and over 75% of the 1200 cars sent to the usa have suffered at least one failure, some after only a few thousand miles. this is criminally negligent behavior and we owners are appealing to you to step in and start an investigation. remember, this is the same company that suffered the 'unintended acceleration" fisaco in the late 80's, and it wasn't until 60 minutes did a story on it that something was done. we need this kind of intervention to force them to fix this dangerous fault. how many have to complain until you do something about this? *tr

rear coil springs failed at 114000 miles- cracked in half, fronts probably next. vehicle's life has been in the northeast subject to heavy use of road salt; seems spring composition similar to the brake rotors and coil springs on ford products that prompted a similar recall. an issue like this isn't expected from audi, and is disappointing. *tr
