Audi A-4 Engine Problems

Component: ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING

Details: PURCHASED THE VEHICLE FROM MCKENNA AUDI IN NORWALK WITH 25,302 MILES AND OEM WARRANTY. THE FIRST ISSUE WAS AN UNUSUAL VIBRATION FROM THE ENGINE AT 29,761 MI. AUDI OF MISSION VIEJO CLAIMED THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG. AT 36,120 MI, THE TRANSMISSION FAILED AND WAS REPLACED. AT 41,940MI, IGNITION COILS WERE REPLACED AFTER COMPLAINING OF VIBRATION/SHUTTERING/HESITATION. AT 46,163MI, COMPLAINED OF SHUTTERING/HESITATION. HOSE SEALS & TIMING BELT ROLLER WERE REPLACED. AT 46,934MI, COMPLAINED OF SAME ISSUES, AUDI OF MV CLAIMED THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG. AT 48,552MI, COMPLAINED OF BURNING SMELL COMING FROM ENGINE, ROUGH IDLE AND VIBRATION. CAM PLUG AND INJECTOR WERE REPLACED. AT 52,811MI, THE ENTIRE ENGINE WAS ROCKING BACK AND FORTH (HAVE VIDEO). CIRCLE AUDI OF LONG BEACH REPLACED CRANK CASE & BREATHER VALVE. ENGINE VIBRATION/HESITATION/SHUTTERING CONTINUED AFTER THIS REPAIR. AT 55,600MI, THE VEHICLE SUDDENLY WITHOUT WARNING ATTEMPTED TO CHANGE INTO A LOWER GEAR (OR PARK) WHILE DRIVING AT 70 MPH ON FREEWAY. THIS MAJOR MECHANICAL FAILURE COULD HAVE LED TO INJURY OR DEATH. VEHICLE WAS INOPERABLE AND TOWED TO RUSNAK AUDI OF WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CA. THE TRANSMISSION WAS REPLACED FOR A SECOND TIME, AFTER LESS THAN 20,000MI. AT 56,000MI, THE CAR IS NOW VIBRATING, SHUTTERING, HESITATING AGAIN (ONLY 1,000MI ON “NEW” TRANSMISSION). IT IS DISPLAYING ALL OF THE SAME ISSUES THAT LED UP TO THE MAJOR MECHANICAL FAILURE ON THE FREEWAY. AUDI OF MISSION VIEJO CLAIMS IT IS DUE TO A LEAKING/CRACKED MOTOR MOUNT AND IMPROPER TRANSMISSION CALIBRATION. AS YOU CAN SEE, THE SAME ISSUES HAVE BEEN OCCURRING SINCE TIME OF PURCHASE, AND DESPITE MINOR REPAIRS, THE TRANSMISSION ALWAYS FAILS. I BELIEVE THE VEHICLE IS IRREPARABLY FLAWED AND UNSAFE. AUDI OF MV HAS ALSO BEEN NEGLECTED. AUDI OF AMERICA (CORPORATE) HAS BEEN CONTACTED. MY REQUEST FOR A BUYBACK DUE TO THE DANGEROUS NATURE OF THIS VEHICLE HAS BEEN DENIED. *TR

Component: ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:ENGINE

Details: WHILE DRIVING MY 2007 AUDI A4 THREE TIMES OVER THE COURSE OF THE LAST MONTH MY CAR HAS DIED WHILE DRIVING. ONCE ON THE HIGHWAY, ONCE ON A LOCAL ROAD, AND A THIRD TIME IN A PARKING LOT. ALL THREE TIMES AUDI CLAIMS THAT “NO ERROR CODE WAS RECORDED” YET THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT AND ELECTRONICS ERROR LIGHT TURNS ON. BECAUSE THEY CANT REPLICATE IT OR SEE AN ERROR THEY ARE REFUSING TO DO ANYTHING TO HELP ME OTHER THAN TEST DRIVE THE CAR. WHAT EVIDENCE DO THEY WANT? WOULD ME IN A BODY BAG AFTER MY CAR QUITS ON THE INTERSTATE AGAIN BE WHAT IT TAKES TO CONVINCE THEM SOMETHING ISNT WORKING? *TR

Component: ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING

Details: SINCE I BOUGHT MY AUDI, I HAVE HAD TO PUT OIL IN IT MANY TIMES, AND HAVE BEEN TOLD THIS IS NORMAL FOR A TURBO. I THINK THAT IS CRAZY, AND EVEN AN AUDI SERVICE MAN TOLD ME NOT ALL OF THE TURBOS DO THAT. I HAVE ALSO HAD AN ISSUE WITH THE CAR SEEMING TO LOSE POWER AND JERK ABOUT TWICE A MONTH WHEN I AM USUALLY AROUND 70 MPH. ITS ALMOST AS IF THE IGNITION IS TURNED OFF FOR 1 SECOND, THEN IT ACTS FINE. THIS IS VERY STARTLING WHEN IT HAPPENS. *TR

Component: ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING

Details: I HAVE HAD TO REPLACE MANY COILPACKS AND DIVERTER VALVES OVER THE PAST TWO YEARS. SEVERAL WERE COVERED UNDER WARRANTY, BUT AS SOON AS I WAS OUT OF WARRANTY I HAD TO START PAYING FOR THEM. THEY BREAK FAR TOO OFTEN AND ARE FAR TOO EXPENSIVE TO NOT BE COVERED BY AUDI. *TR

Details: AFTER LEASING THE CAR 2 MONTHS LATER I HAD TO ADD OIL TO IT. THE ENGINE BURNS OIL LIKE CRAZY. 1 QUART OF OIL PER MONTH TO MONTH AND A HALF. THE ENGINE OIL WARNING LIGHT HAS COME SEVERAL TIMES CAUSING ME TO PULL OFF THE ROAD INTO THE CLOSEST GAS STATION TO BUY SOME OIL. DEPENDING OF WHEN IT HAPPENS, THIS HAS BEEN SOMEWHAT STRESSFUL. I HAVE BEEN TOLD THIS IS NORMAL. I DO NOT THINK SO. IF THEY HAD TOLD ME THIS, I WOULD NOT HAVE LEASED THIS CAR! *TR
