It seems that your problem is with the dealer. I had the same problem with my A4. With just 13500 miles they had to change the transmission. But the dealer was so diligent, that I will still buy another Audi.

European cars aren't as reliable as Japanese - it's just something you have to live with, and besides, Mercedes are considerably worse than your Audi!

This is nothing new with Audi. Even they 2008 A4 is having some really bad reviews from owners. There something bad with the BOSCH components. My father had a 1999 A4 and it was the worst car in History, but not technically a LEMON.

Incredible. And for this they charge such big amounts of money!
To the person that commented on 4th Feb 2008, 17:55, I disagree. I have a Mercedes from the year 2000. It has more than 202,000kms and I have never had a single problem. I haven't even changed the battery! Mercedes has a great quality.

I have a 2004 A4 Cabriolet. I have had 4 ignition coils go out. You get no warning - the car just dies. I seriously think this is a safety issue that Audi needs to address. If I had been driving through the mountains just last week, when the car failed, I would not be writing this. I have talked to Audi assoc., they give you the run around. I will NEVER own another Audi.

Have an Audi A4 1.8T that has had ignition coils replaced, transmission module replaced, front brakes did not work, water pump leaking at 60,000 miles, and camshaft seals leaking at 60,000 miles.
The repair costs are more than all the money spent on my 1994 Honda Del Sol with 323,000 miles on it.
Have a 2006 Cobalt with 60,000 miles, that has had two minor recalls costing zero dollars, and has had no problems.
