intermittent problem with engine computer kept it from accelerating. it would suddenly only idle out from a stop. if you were to pull into traffic you could not accelerate and would be hit or cause someone else to swerve to avoid you. it took the dealer 7 months to find the problem and replace the ecu. it became obvious after replacement that it had been bad since day one and gradually got worse since all acceleration hesitation went away. this unit quickly failed and had to be replaced also.

if you open any window or sunroof, a loud wind turblance creats a boom and does not go away until you close all windows/sun. this problem is known by audi , but they do not want to fix it. they say that i can go buy a wind deflector. this problem has caused major headaces, and has distracted me from the road on many occassions, almost leading to an accident. this noise is very loud, and is clearly a defect in the design of this vehicle. i have written to audi that this problem can lead to many accidents, but they don't care. i know that many people have complained to audi, and they know about this. i would like to see nhtsa to a recall to have this problem corrected before anyone dies.

wipers stopped working during a rain storm, left the blade up and in my view. turned the wipers off then back to the on position to see if that would retract them. they moved about an inch and then the window cracked right above the drivers side wiper arm. wipers work fine as long as i leave a cracked windshield in place. replace it and they work intermittently until the window cracks again. *tr
