Safety incident date:
May 15, 2003
Location:
West Chester, PA

the problem that i have is when it rains. all four doors fill with up water. when i open any door a quart or more pours out of each door, door sills are always wet. in the winter, water freezes on the door sills and can't open door or have trouble (can't drive the car if i can't get in it!) took the car to the dealer to get it fixed. they told me the car is to audi spec.'s and did nothing! called audi customer relations and they are doing nothing and also i have been waiting for a manager to return my phone call for a week now. i have left several messages, still no return phone call (great audi severce!). from this water damage the mirrors are not responding to their hold positions and i'am also afaid from all the moister in the doors that the electronics we start to corrosion process and who pays for that in the long run? i would think the least they could have replaced the weather stripping around all the doors. my audi is 6 months old with 1800 miles, four doors rusting away, and the dealership and audi wants to do nothing about it. i even showed them the rust at bottom of doors. what happens when the ice builds up so much and can't get out of the car, is this a safty issue? i'm just tired of getting my shoes and feet wet getting into a $40,000 car, then have to go get changed, but for some reason this is ok? i just never owned a vehicle in which water is allowed to get into the car's door before. i would like to meet the engineer who designed this feature!

audi 2008 tt. the side view mirrors do not go out far enough to safely see the road. i was told be the dealer they were normal. i own 4 other audi's that do not have the same problem. i have been told this from 2 different dealers. i explained that if they did not put the mirrors on the car so they could move out far enough to see, it was not always correct. they did not listen to my complaint. i think they have them all mounted wrong so they leave most of the lane next to you, especially on the right side. *tr

2004 audi a4 quattro wipers started to run slowly. sometimes would stop in the middle of the windshield. ran slowly for a couple of weeks. finally, drivers side wiper disengaged from linkage and actually cracked my windshield. took it to shop for repair, and was told that the "wiper transmission" was broken and needed to be repaired. when calling for parts, shop found out that this part is in "high demand" due to an apparent design defect. read more about others with similar problems online. this will end up costing me close to $1000 to replace that bad wiper assembly and my windshield. how could this not be a recalled item? *tr

Groton, MA

2005 audi s4 cabriolet - rear window separating from soft convertible top. top appears to be shrinking at the window edges as well. independent convertible top repair facility as well as local audi dealer confirm that this is due to defective adhesive used in the manufacturing process. audi of america refuses to remedy this issue to date. vehicle has 49,000 miles on the odometer and has been out of factory warranty for only a few weeks. rear window will almost certainly come fully loose from the top soon, and could either strike a rear passenger or simply dislodge at highway speeds, potentially injuring or killing persons traveling behind this vehicle. the potential for an extremely dangerous accident is present here. this is a serious safety-related defect. a recall is needed here to prevent potential loss of life. audi is handling these top problems on a case-by-case basis, and is fighting hard with owners not to pay at all. audi dealers are quoting in excess of $6400 to replace the top, costly enough to prevent many owners from safely repairing the top. per information sourced from audiworld.com, many owners are not replacing the top due to the exorbitant cost but rather simply gluing or taping the rear window in place and hoping for the best. this is an issue which clearly requires a recall in the interest of public safety. *tr
