1998 Audi A4 1.8 T turbo from North America
Timing Belt Nightmare
Timing Belt broke at 50K
Ignition Control Module replaced at 80K.
Does anyone have any information regarding a class action lawsuit being filed against Audi for the timing belts on the A-4's? Mine broke at 50K and cost me so much money, that by the time it reached 80K, I couldn't afford the car anymore. I am still paying on a loan I took out to put a new head on it due to the fact that all exhaust valves were bent when belt broke at 50,000 miles. Service interval, to my knowledge, is 90,000. clearly a defective part. Many have experienced this same problem and I'm glad to hear a class action was brought. I need to find info regarding this. Can anyone help?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Class Action Suit filed in New Jersey for the timing belt problem. Many engines were destroyed because of the defect. Hooray! Take that you stupid Mechanic.

Do you have any information on how to join this lawsuit? My daughter has had a bad experience with this issue? She has a 99 Audi A4 with 44,000 miles.
