Subject: My Audi Sucks Too
First, I am very sorry that you have experienced Audi Customer Service
Hell, as I have. You see, the 2002 Audi A4
that I currently own has been a total nightmare-completely unreliable,
service repeatedly for such things as
small (but annoying) as blown relays for wipers, stereo and horn
malfunctions, a leaky windshield and as major as
oil sludge-caused engine failure (in the shop for over a month
while I drove a Mazda piece of shit), and as of
today a blown coil.
I hate this car. _Moreover,
_I hate Audi of America who fails to
acknowledge this as unacceptable or
compensate he consumer fairly._
Like you and most other customers, I don't expect anything for free
don't expect my _xxx _kissed.
However, _I do_
expect to be_ treated fairly and with
courtesy- when there is a
problem fix_ it as quickly as_
possible. _I paid_
$28,000_ for this car (purchased new)
and regret every penny.
I will NEVER_ do business with_
VW/ Audi again. This is sad considering my household has only purchased
Audi's or Volkswagens since 1984.
Buyers please beware.
Good luck Anthony and thank you for your site. When I correspond
with Marjorie at Audi Client
Relations, I will be sure to mention this site. :)

a shame what people have to go through.. and the lemon law is_
a bunch_ of bs too! I could get a divorce
than I can get a hearing for my car. I have found that Audi does
the bare minimum.. they don't care. Its not the people
that work there.. its that audi wont let them do the work that needs
to be done. I'll be happy when this is all over with...
I'm telling everyone I know about your site! What's so hard is that
everytime I look at my car I love it! and then I have to
deal with taking it to the shop every 2 weeks.. and it kills me.
I guess I'm_ going to go back to American
cars once I'm
able to get rid of it....I wanted this car for 5years....its such
a disappointment._ I start to think
that maybe I just got the
"lemon" and it couldn't possibly be all of them? what
do u think? I know that I wont_ EVER
own another one.. thats for
sure. I'll keep you posted. Thanks SOOO much for your help.. _I
know that nothing makes you feel better.. its like the
car has taken over my life.. so I can only imagine how you felt!
_I know that the only way I have a
chance at winning is
if I have the car in my possession....ttyl.. thanks again!

Subject: RE: Anthony US - Re: Audi TT problems - UK
Good to hear from you.
I have just shot of my first volley to Audi UK threatening legal
It took me only one day of research to discover that this problem
was common place in the UK, there are
100 of people that are being ripped off and all it would take would
be one person to collate the problems
and make a case from it.
I am wondering if we could somehow join hands across the pond to
add strength to our cause. This new
web site, I wonder if it would be worth adding a European dimension
to it also, now that would make me
sit up and take note. If people were to read on a web site what
was happening in the US and then also
in Europe then they would think that this is truly a Audi world
problem, this should make Audi sit up or
at least add to the pressure.
What do you think ?
I am fighting mad and will put my time into it.
you read this Consumer reports email below. Skip to the bottom line
of the email and
_____read it first. I wonder if Consumer
Report was paid to do the report like they did?

Highs: Interior craftsmanship, all-wheel drive.
Ride, noise, shifter feel, view out.
by Tracey Kroll
Body style: Coupe or convertible
Drive wheels: Front or AWD
Trim lines: --
Engine & transmissions: 1.8-liter 4 turbo (180 hp); 1.8-liter
4 turbo (225 hp); 5-speed manual,
6-speed manual Base price range: $31,200 to $38,900
Tested: Convertible AWD, 225-hp turbo Four, 6-speed manual
The TT is an artfully designed car with a well-crafted
interior. It accelerates quickly and handles
securely, and is the only car of the group to offer all-wheel drive.
However, its ride is stiff and the
least comfortable of these five cars, and there is a lot of cabin
noise. ----Priced at about $42,000,
the TT is one of the least-expensive cars here.
THE DRIVING EXPERIENCE
The TT handles neatly most of the time, but the body leans in hard
turns. The steering is quick
and well weighted. All-wheel drive helps traction on slick surfaces.
Driven fast at our track, the
TT proved predictable and secure, but not as sporty as the Corvette
or Boxster. When pressed
beyond its limits, it tended to plow--lose
grip at the front wheels--a bit earlier
than the others.
But the TT acquitted itself well in our avoidance-maneuver test.
comfort is compromised by the stiff suspension, which makes the
car jiggly and nervous on
smooth roads and almost_ jarring on_
rough pavement. __Road, wind, and engine
noise are loud
enough to drown out conversation. The 225-hp, 1.8-liter turbocharged
four-cylinder engine delivers
lively performance. __Expect -22
mpg in mixed driving on premium fuel. __The
transmission has well-chosen ratios but has a shifter that feels
vague. An automatic is not offered.
The base trim level has a 180-hp version of the 1.8-liter Four coupled
to a five-speed manual
gearbox. Braking performance was excellent overall.
Our tall drivers felt cramped, while our five-footer felt she was
sitting too low for comfort. Long
clutch-pedal travel forced some drivers to sit closer to the wheel
than they liked. With the top
up, visibility is poor, with large blind spots._-
However, the glass rear window provides clearer
visibility than the Boxster's plastic window. __The
seat is firm and well shaped, but getting in
and out of the car takes dexterity. ___-The
gauges are easy to see and controls are nicely lit.
Storage nooks are small but plentiful._
The two cup holders are sturdy but hard to reach. The
trunk is tiny. We could fit just one suitcase and a weekend bag,
but not a set of golf clubs or
a folded wheelchair. A temporary spare stores beneath the floor.
SAFETY AND RELIABILITY
to see video
CLOTH The powered cloth top works well. _-A
plastic wind deflector (not shown) helps
reduce wind buffeting when the top is down. Standard safety gear
includes side air bags and safety
belts equipped with pretensioners and force-limiters. __Sensors_
detect_ when a safety belt is
buckled, which allows the appropriate air bag to deploy in slightly
less severe crashes._- The fixed
head restraints are tall enough to provide whiplash protection.
frontal-crash-test results are
available. A government side-impact test predicted no or minor injury
for the driver.
Bumper damage was extensive.
with kids. There's a cutoff switch for the passenger's frontal air
bag. Most child seats should
fit well. Rear-facing infant seats may require additional bolstering
to position them properly.
Our car had two sample defects. The most serious was a flywheel
problem that required
an extended dealer stay. The TT has a worse-than-average reliability
