AUDI A4 Vehicle Speed Control

AUDI A4 1999 Vehicle Speed Control Report #702658

AUDI A4 1999 car safety problem was reported on Dec 18, 1998.AUDI A4 1999, manufactured by Volkswagen of America, Inc. had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . I WAS BACKING UP IN DRIVEWAY IN FRONT OF ANOTHER VEHICLE WHICH WAS PARKED IN FRONT OF A HOUSE. MY CAR GAVE A SLIGHT LURCH AND THE MOTOR REVVED UP. I IMMEDIATELY LOOKED BECAUSE I THOUGHT I MUST HAVE MY FOOT ON THE ACCELERATOR. MY FOOT WAS ON THE BRAKE. HOWEVER, THE CAR SUDDENLY ACCELERATED BACKWARD INTO THE TRUCK, DRIVING IT 15 FEET INTO THE PORCH STEPS. THE PICKUP TRUCK WAS TOTALLED AND THE STEPS COMPLETELY DEMOLISHED. WE IMMEDIATELY CONTACTED TISCHER, OUR INSURANCE COMPANY AND ATTEMPTED TO CONTACT SOMEONE AT AUDI. IT WAS A FULL 2 WEEKS BEFORE SOMEONE FROM AUDI CALLED US BACK. FINALLY, AN AUDI REP MET US TO INSPECT THE CAR. AUDI DETERMINED THAT IT WAS "OPERATOR ERROR" AND ABSOLUTELY REFUSED TO DO ANYTHING. WE'RE HAVING OUR INSURANCE COMPANY REPAIR THE AUDI, AND WE WILL THEN TRADE IT IN ON OUR SECOND CHOICE CAR--A BMW. I SIMPLY COULD NOT DRIVE THE AUDI AGAIN, AND THANK GOD THAT NO ONE WAS INJURED. I BELIEVE THAT AUDI'S ARE VERY DANGEROUS AND SHOULD BE TAKEN OFF THE ROAD UNTIL THIS "SUDDEN ACCELERATION" PROBLEM HAS BEEN SOLVED. IF IT WERE "OPERATOR ERROR" AS THEY CLAIM--WHY DOES ONLY HAPPEN IN AUDI'S??? PLEASE DO EVERYTHING YOU CAN TO HAVE THIS PROBLEM CORRECTED BEFORE MORE PEOPLE ARE MAIMED, INJURED AND KILLED. *AK.Vehicle was involved in a crash. 0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):WAUED28D8XA.

AUDI A4 1999 car safety problem was reported on Jan 01, 1999.AUDI A4 1999, manufactured by Volkswagen of America, Inc. had a problem with VISIBILITY:DEFROSTER/DEFOGGER SYSTEM . PROBLEM: WHEN TEMPERATURE FALLS BELOW 38 F, RECIRCULATION BUTTON NEVER WORKS. BEING IN BOSTON THAT COVERS MOST OF THE WINTER. THE ONLY WAY NOT TO BREATHE THE FUMES IS TO TURN THE VENTILATION OFF COMPLETELY. THIS THEN SHUTS THE HEAT AS WELL. MY NEW COMMUTE TAKES ME DAILY THROUGH THE CALAHAN TUNNEL. IF OUTSIDE IS 13 F, AND I AM STUCK IN TRAFFIC IN THE TUNNEL FOR AN HOUR, THESE ARE MY OPTIONS: KEEP THE HEAT RUNNING UNTIL POISONED BY GAS FUMES (GARAGE ANALOGY), OR SHUT OFF HEAT UNTIL FROSTBITTEN AT 13 F. CAN THIS BE CONSIDERED A SAFETY VIOLATION? ATTEMPTED RESOLUTION: AUDI OF AMERICA'S RESPONSE WAS THAT A/C HAS TO BE TURNED ON FOR RECIRCULATION BUTTON TO BE OPERATIONAL. SINCE A/C DOES NOT WORK BELOW 38 F (THEY CITED SOME FEDERAL REGULATION) SO THE RECIRCULATION BUTTON DOES NOT AS WELL. THE DEVICE WORKS AS DESIGNED, ACCORDING TO AUDI. MY DEALER, TOM WALTON OF PARK PORSCHE AUDI, TOLD ME CONFIDENTIALLY THAT THEY HAVE CUSTOMERS WHO DID NOT WANT TO PURCHASE AUDI A4 UNTIL THESE PROBLEMS WERE SOLVED. I FILED A REPORT WITH AUDIO OF AMERICA TWICE. THERE WAS NO FOLLOW UP EITHER TIME. MEANWHILE DEALERS SERVICE DEPARTMENT INFORMED ME THAT THEY INQUIRED ABOUT THIS BEFORE AND WERE TOLD THAT DEVICE OPERATES AS DESIGNED. THE SAME YEAR I RENTED EXACTLY THE SAME VEHICLE IN GERMANY AND NOTICED THAT THERE WAS A DIFFERENT A/C ASSEMBLY INSTALLED, AND THAT RECIRCULATION BUTTON WORKED WELL IN TEMPERATURES BELOW 20 F. IN U.S., THE SAME A/C ASSEMBLY BECAME AVAILABLE WITH THE 2000 MODEL YEAR, WHERE THIS PROBLEM IS NOT PRESENT. I ASKED THE DEALER IF I COULD PAY TO HAVE THAT A/C ASSEMBLY INSTALLED BUT WAS TOLD THAT THAT WAS NOT POSSIBLE. WHEN SURFING ON THE WEB, I DISCOVERED A SIMILAR PROBLEM REPORTED BY ANOTHER OWNER WITH THE SAME VEHICLE, BUT ONLY THIS TIME THE 1997 MODEL YEAR. SO IT APPEARS THAT FOR SURE 1997-1999 MODEL YEAR A4'S HAVE A FAULTY A/C ASSEMBLY.

AFTER TRAVELING FOR SEVERAL MINUTES ON FREEWAYS IN RAIN STORMS THE FIRST APPLICATION OF THE BRAKES DOES NOT SLOW THE CAR.

WHEN THIS HAPPENS, INSTINCTS ARE TO PRESS THE BRAKE HARDER AND WHEN THE WATER IS FINALLY SHED THE CAR WILL PULL SHARPLY IN REACTION TO WHICH EVER OF THE BRAKES 'DRIES' FIRST. AUDI HAS DESIGNED AND SELLS A PLASTIC WING THAT FITS AROUND THE INSIDE OF THE WHEEL WELL AT THE UNDERBODY/WHEEL WELL INTERFACE TO COMBAT THIS BUT IT ONLY MAKES A MARGINAL IMPROVEMENT.

WHEN THE CAR WAS ABOUT A YEAR OLD, THE ENTIRE AIRBAG SYSTEM HAD TO BE REPLACED, THE REPAIR FACILITY NOTED TO ME THAT I WAS LUCKY TO BRING IT IN WHEN I DID, AS IT WAS AT RISK FOR SPONTANEOUS DEPLOYMENT. ADDITIONAL PROBLEMS INCLUDED AN OIL PUMP FAILURE ($750) AT ABOUT THE THREE YEAR MARK; AND OCCASIONAL SUDDEN LURCHING/RPM REVVING OR SUDDEN ONSET OF A 'LAG' IN POWER, WHICH THE DEALER NOTED WHEN I BROUGHT IT IN BUT COULD DO NOTHING ABOUT. I HAVE ALSO HAD PROBLEMS WITH THE FUEL INDICATOR GAUGE BEING GROSSLY INACCURATE - INDICATING I HAVE USED ONLY A QUARTER TANK OF FUEL TO DRIVE 350 MILES. HOWEVER, THE MOST BOTHERSOME ONGOING PROBLEM IS FOUR OR FIVE TRIPS TO THE DEALER TO REPAIR A NON-FUNCTIONING CRUISE CONTROL SYSTEM. EACH TIME THEY HAVE 'REPLACED THE VACUUM HOSES' BUT THIS 'REPAIR' WILL BEGIN TO FAIL AGAIN LATER THAT SAME DAY. THE SYSTEM WILL EITHER FAIL TO ENGAGE ALTOGETHER, OR IT WILL BE ENGAGED DURING HIGHWAY DRIVING, THEN WITHIN A FEW MINUTES, THE SPEED WILL CONTINUALLY DECREASE UNTIL I HAVE TO MANUALLY DISENGAGE THE SYSTEM AND TURN IT OFF.

IT SHOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED AT 68000 AS IT IS NOT A WEARABLE PART. THE CAR STARTED STALLING, PRESSED GAS PEDAL BUT THERE WAS NO MOVEMENT. SCALE OF THE RPM'S ON THE DASH BOARD WENT ALL THE WAY TO 5500 RPM'S, WHEN I PRESSED A GAS PEDAL, BUT THE CAR DID NOT MOVE. SUDDENLY, I WAS ENGULFED IN HUMUNGOUS AMOUNT OF WHITE SMOKE. BROUGHT CAR TO DON ROSEN AUDI SERVICE CENTER AND THEY ARE SAYING THAT REPAIR WILL COST ME SOME $1,600 AT LEAST. BUT, I BROUGHT MY CAR IN, MONTH AGO TO DON ROSEN AUDI AUTHORIZED SERVICE CENTER WITH COMPLAINT THAT THERE WAS WHITE SMOKE COMING OUT OF THE EXHAUST AND THAT VEHICLE WAS RUNNING AT 60% OF ITS POWER. THEY LOOKED AT IT AND SAID THEY DID NOT SEE ANY PROBLEM, PARTICULARLY THAT THE TURBO-CHARGER WAS JUST FINE. I SAID, MAYBE THERE IS NO SMOKE COMING OUT RIGHT THIS MOMENT, BUT IT IS HAPPENING EVERY SINGLE DAY, FEW TIMES A DAY, AND PLEASE TO LOOK AT IT BETTER. THEY'VE JUST SENT ME HOME TELLING ME THERE WAS NO PROBLEM. I TOLD THEM THAT IT WAS THEIR MISTAKE BY NOT LISTENING ME WHEN I COMPLAINED ON TIME TO FIX IT. BUT THEY DID NOT WANT TO HEAR MY ARGUMENT. NOW, I HAVE TO PAY FOR THE REPAIR I'VE TOLD THEM MONTH AND A HALF AGO TO FIX. PLUS, THIS BRAKE-DOWN SHOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED AT FIRST PLACE AT THIS MILEAGE. ALSO, WHEN I VISITED THEM MONTH AGO THEY'VE TOLD ME THAT I NEED TO CHANGE A TIMING BELT ONLY. I SEE THAT TIMING BELT, AS A PART COSTS ONLY $40, BUT THEY WANT TO CHARGE $1,000 TO FIX IT.

(1) IN MAY 2002 I PURCHASED A CERTIFIED PRE-OWNED AUDI A4 FROM THE LEITH AUDI IN CARY, NC. MY MANUFACTURER WARRANTY EXPIRED EARLIER THIS YEAR AND I TOOK MY CAR TO THE DEALER ON OCTOBER 8TH 2004 FOR A COMPREHENSIVE INSPECTION PRICED AT $450. THE DEALER RECOMMENDED A FEW REPAIRS AND I DID THEM ALL AT A COST OF ANOTHER ~$1200. I SPECIFICALLY ASKED THE AUDI REP IF I NEEDED TO CHANGE MY TIMING BELT. THE VERBAL COMMUNICATION FROM THE DEALER WAS THAT I DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THAT, SINCE THE MANUFACTURER RECOMMENDS A TIMING BELT CHANGE AT 90,000 MILES, MINE HAS ONLY 65,000. THE DEALER DID NOT PROVIDE ME WITH A WRITTEN SUMMARY OF THE INSPECTION RESULTS AND THE UPCOMING RECOMMENDED REPAIRS. (2) A WEEK AFTER THIS COSTLY COMPREHENSIVE INSPECTION MY CAR BREAKS DOWN ON THE HIGHWAY DUE TO TIMING BELT FAILURE. THE DEALER QUOTES A REPAIR COST OF $4000 AND CLAIMS THAT THEY HAVE RECOMMENDED A TIMING BELT REPLACEMENT, WHICH IS NOT TRUE. (3) THE DEALER REFUSES TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY AND REPAIR THE CAR AT THEIR EXPENSE. I BELIEVE THAT THE DAMAGE IS A RESULT OF THEIR FAILURE TO INSPECT THE TIMING BELT AND RECOMMEND REPLACEMENT ONLY A WEEK BEFORE THE ACCIDENT. .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 65000 miles.

AUDI A4 1999 Service Brakes, Hydraulic Antilock Report #10144827

AUDI A4 1999 car safety problem was reported on Dec 08, 2005.AUDI A4 1999, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:ANTILOCK . 1999 AUDI A4 ABS CONTROL MODULE SYMPTOMS. ABS LIGHT ON CONTINUOUSLY. BRAKE LIGHT FLASHING. UPON THE FIRST INSPECTION THE AUDI DEALERSHIP WAS UNABLE TO ASCERTAIN THE PROBLEM. THE FAILURE WAS LATER DIAGNOSED CORRECTLY BY THE DEALERSHIP. TESTING THE ABS SYSTEM AFTER THE DIAGNOSIS, I FOUND THAT THE ABS SYSTEM DID NOT ENGAGE. I LEARN OF MANY CASES OF THIS EXACT FAILURE IN AUDI┬??S AND VW┬??S WITH THE BOSCH 5.3 ABS CONTROL MODULE: ONE PROMINENT SITE BEING HTTP://TECH.BENTLEYPUBLISHERS.COM. THE DEALERSHIP MAY HAVE MISDIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM BECAUSE THE CONTROL MODULE MAY BE UNABLE TO COMMUNICATE WITH THE CAR┬??S COMPUTER UPON FAILURE. ALSO, IT SEEMS THAT THE PROBLEM IS INTERMITTENT FOR SOME PERIOD BEFORE COMPLETE FAILURE. THE WARNING LIGHTS MAY DISAPPEAR PRIOR TO COMPLETE FAILURE. IT SEEMS THE FAILURE IS OCCURRING AT SOME POINT BEYOND 60,000 MILES. THIS WOULD ACCOUNT FOR THE RELATIVELY LOW OCCURRENCE, BUT WOULD PORTENT TO THE POSSIBILITY OF A MUCH GREAT NUMBER OF OCCURRENCES WITH TIME. AN UNWARY DRIVER MAY NOT BE COGNIZANT OF THE FAILURE AND THEREFORE NOT EXERCISE THE CAUTION NECESSARY TO AVERT A COLLISION. ONE FUTURE ISSUE EXACERBATES THAT CONCERN: THE ABS LIGHT AND THE BRAKE LIGHT WARNING SIGNALS DISAPPEAR UNDER 32 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT OR THEREABOUT. SO, AS WE NEAR WINTER AND THE POSSIBILITY OF INCLEMENT WEATHER, THE CHANCES OF A TRAGEDY INCREASE SUBSTANTIALLY. I HAVE CONTACTED AUDI WITH MY FINDINGS. AUDI STATED THEY HAVE NOT SEEN EVIDENCE OF MASS FAILURES. THEY STATED THAT THEY WILL NOT ACT ON THE INFORMATION THAT I HAVE OBTAINED. THERE ARE COPIOUS POSTINGS ON THE INTERNET IDENTIFYING INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE CONTACTED AUDI. SURPRISINGLY, SOME OF THESE INDIVIDUALS PROFESS THAT AUDI PAID FOR THE REPAIR IN CASES OF OUT-OF-WARRANTY, HIGH-MILEAGE VEHICLES. I BELIEVE THAT AN AUDIT OF THE NUMBER OF THE BOSCH 5.3 ABS CONTROL MODULES BEING ORDER AS REPLACEMENT PARTS WILL ILLUMINATE THE GRAVITY OF THIS PROBLEM. *NM .Mileage was 60000 miles.

I AM AN OWNER OF A 1999 AUDI A4 QUATTRO WITH THE 2.8 ENGINE; THE VIN OF THE VEHICLE IS [XXX]; THE VEHICLE HAS 101,845 MILES. I WAS HAVING THE FOLLOWING ISSUE; AT ABOUT 100,000 MILES THE ABS AND BRAKE WARNING LIGHTS WOULD COME ON INDICATING AND ABS FAILURE. THIS WOULD OCCUR AFTER THE CAR IS COMPLETELY WARMED UP. I DID SOME CHECKING AND DISCOVERED THAT THERE IS PROBLEM WITH ABS CONTROL UNIT. I FURTHER INVESTIGATED THIS ISSUE AND ALSO DISCOVERED THAT THIS IS A KNOWN AND COMMON PROBLEM WITH 1996-2001 AUDI A4S. VOLKSWAGEN JETTAS AND PASSATS OF THE SAME YEAR, THAT UTILIZE THE SAME SYSTEM, HAD/HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM; IT CAME TO MY ATTENTION THAT VOLKSWAGEN CONDUCTED A NATIONAL RECALL CAMPAIGN TO ADDRESS THIS PROBLEM. I WAS WONDERING WHY AUDI HAS NOT HANDLED THIS PROBLEM IN THE SAME MANNER. I DONT THINK AUDI OWNERS SHOULD BE EXPECTED PAY TO FIX A CLEARLY MANUFACTURERS DEFECT, AND A SAFETY COMPONENT AT THAT! I CONTACT AUDI CUSTOMER SERVICE TO GET A REACTION FROM THEM; THE REFERENCE NUMBER IS [XXX]. I WROTE A DETAILED LETTER TO MR. JOHAN DENYSSCHEN EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT AUDI NORTH AMERICA; HE IN TURN PASSED THE LETTER TO ONE OF THE AUDI REGIONAL MANAGERS ANNETTE JOHNSON. THE REGIONAL MANAGER HAD INDICATED THAT THE ISSUE SHOULD BE DIAGNOSED BY AN AUTHORIZED AUDI SERVICE CENTER (AUDI DEALER). HER TONE WAS VERY HELPFUL; HOWEVER SHE HAS INDICATED THAT THERE HAVE NOT BEEN ENOUGH COMPLAINTS TO CONSTITUTE A RECALL. FURTHERMORE, THEY DO NOT CONSIDER THE ABS FAILURE AS A SAFETY ISSUE SINCE THEY REGARD THE SYSTEM AS A DRIVER┬┐┐S AIDE. ADDITIONALLY SHE COULD NOT FIND ANY RECORDS THAT SHOWED VOLKSWAGENS BEING RECALLED FOR THE SAME ISSUE. I EVENTUALLY GOT A PROBLEM FIXED AT A SMALLER SHOP, WHICH COST ME AROUND $600.00 DOLLARS. THE DEALER WAS GOING TO OVER CHARGE ME ON THE PART BY $400.00 AND 6.5 HOURS OF LABOR AT $105.00 PER HOUR FOR A JOB THAT ACTUALLY TOOK ONLY 1.5 HOURS. *NM UPDATED 07/17/2012 *JS INFORMATION REDACTED PURSUANT TO THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 99000 miles.

AT THE TIME, MY CAR HAD 79,000 MILES AND THE DEALER CASUALLY MENTIONED THAT I NEED TO HAVE MY TIMING BELT REPLACED AT 90,000 MILES. THE DEALER DID NOT INFORM ME OF ANY OTHER PROBLEMS WITH MY CAR. SUBSEQUENTLY, I DROVE MY CAR. THEN A FEW WEEKS LATER WHEN I WAS DRIVING MY CAR AT 65 MPH ON THE HIGHWAY, THE TIMING BELT SUDDENLY GAVE OUT AND THE CAR ENGINE DIED ON THE SPOT. I COULD HAVE ALSO BEEN KILLED ON THE SPOT. AT THIS TIME, MY CAR HAD 80,000 MILES, NO WHERE NEAR 90,000 MILES THAT THE DEALER CASUALLY MENTIONED. I AM WRITING TO YOU TO INFORM YOU OF THIS MALFUNCTIONING TIMING BELT PROBLEM. THE TIMING BELT DAMAGED THE ENGINE AND THE DEALER IS QUOTING ME $7,700 FIXED MY CAR.

I AM FULLY AWARE OF THE CLASS ACTION LAW SUIT ON 1997-99 AUDI A4 FOR THE MALFUNCTIONING TIMING BELT.

THEY CALLED THE DEALER ON MY BEHALF, BUT AUDI USA WAS NOT WILLING TO DO ANYTHING FURTHER ONCE THE DEALER DENIED ANY RESPONSIBILITY. MY CAR IS STILL DAMAGED WITH NO ENGINE.

THE VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL RECALL (NHTSA: 04V495000 ) ATTACHED BELOW FOR THE 1999 AUDI A6 HAPPENED ON MY CAR THE AUDI A4. IT IS THE SAME TRANSMISSION. I BELIEVE THE RECALL SHOULD BE EXTENDED TO INCLUDE THE 1999 A4 AS WELL. THE INCIDENT HAPPENED IN VERMONT WHEN THE ROADS WERE WET/SNOWY AND THE TEMPERATURE WAS DROPPING RAPIDLY (5 DEGREES/HOUR). THE CAR WOULD NOT STOP. IT WAS FREAKY. WHEN I SPOKE WITH AUDI USA, THEY EXPLAINED I NEEDED TO GO TO A DEALER. TWO AUDI DEALERS IN THE BOSTON AREA WERE DISMISSIVE OF THE SITUATION. "THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN IN YOUR CAR".

THIS IS NOT ABOUT A PARTICULAR INCIDENT BUT RATHER SOMETHING THAT HAS BEEN GETTING PROGRESSIVELY WORSE. THE EXTERIOR MIRRORS HAVE BEEN LOSING THEIR REFLECTIVITY. I WAS TOLD BY SOMEONE THAT IT'S THE SILVER ON THE BACKSIDE OF THE MIRROR THAT IS FLAKING OFF AND THAT IT HAPPENS WHEN THE TEMPERATURE CHANGES FAIRLY QUICKLY. I ASKED MY LOCAL AUDI DEALERSHIP ABOUT THIS AND THEY SAID IT WAS VERY UNCOMMON AND WOULD BE ABOUT $75 TO REPLACE THE MIRROR. AS I DRIVE AROUND AND AS I WALK PAST OTHER AUDIS AND VOLKSWAGENS I NOTICE THAT THE SAME THING IS HAPPENING ON THEIR MIRRORS AS HAPPENED TO BOTH OF MINE. I ASKED A MECHANIC AT ANOTHER SHOP IN RUTLAND ABOUT IT AND HE SAID HE SEES IT ALL THE TIME. IF IT'S THE NATURE OF THE REFLECTIVE MATERIAL AND IT'S REASONABLE TO HAVE THIS HAPPEN THEN FINE. IT SEEMS AS THOUGH, HOWEVER, THAT IT'S A PROBLEM PLAGUING MANY OF THESE TYPES OF CARS AND A PROBLEM THAT AUDI, OR AT LEAST MY LOCAL DEALERSHIP, WILL NOT ADMIT IS A COMMON FAILURE WITH THESE MIRRORS. *NM.Audi A4 1999 problem was reported in RUTLAND, VT.

AUDI A4 1999 car safety problem was reported on Jan 17, 2007.AUDI A4 1999, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . JANUARY 17, 2007, 8 DEGREES - DRY ROAD CONDITIONS I ACCELERATED UP A STEEP HILL ON MY WAY TO WORK WHEN AT THE TOP OF THE HILL I TOOK MY FOOT OFF THE ACCELERATOR AND THE VEHICLE'S RPMS RACED TO 7,000. I POPPED THE CAR INTO NEUTRAL AND PUNCHED THE GAS PEDAL AND THE CAR REDUCED SPEED AND RPMS THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS. THIS IS MY SECOND COMPLAINT - IT HAPPENED LAST WINTER WITH WET ROAD CONDITIONS BUT VERY VERY COLD. I TOOK THE CAR TO THE DEALER LAST YEAR AND THEY CLAIM THERE IS NOTHING WRONG. I HAD THE ACCELERATOR CABLE REPLACED. THERE IS A RECALL ON THE AUDI A-6 AND THE DEALER CLAIMS MY CAR DOES NOT QUALIFY. ON CERTAIN PASSENGER VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH 2.8L, V6 5-VALVE ENGINES, AND AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSIONS, WHILE DRIVING DURING EXTREMELY LOW AMBIENT TEMPERATURES THE THROTTLE MAY FREEZE IN AN OPEN POSITION DUE TO ICE ACCUMULATING IN THE THROTTLE BODY. IF THIS OCCURS, THE VEHICLE MAY FAIL TO REDUCE SPEED WHEN THE DRIVER LIFTS HIS/HER FOOT FROM THE GAS PEDAL. THIS LOSS OF VEHICLE CONTROL COULD RESULT IN A CRASH WITHOUT WARNING. SOMETHING MUST BE DONE TO MAKE AUDI REALIZE THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS AND APPLIES TO THE A-4 NOT JUST THE A-6. *NM *NM.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 73000 miles.

AUDI A4 1999 Vehicle Speed Control Report #10179409

AUDI A4 1999 car safety problem was reported on Jan 19, 2007.AUDI A4 1999, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . MY HUSBAND AND I OWN A 1999 AUDI A4. ON 01/19/07 I WAS DRIVING DOWN THE I-15 FREEWAY AT 75 MPH WHEN SUDDENLY MY CAR BEGAN TO ACCELERATE WITHOUT ME PUSHING THE GAS PEDAL. I BRAKED, AND THE CAR SLOWED A LITTLE, BUT I STILL FELT TENSION, LIKE IT WAS TRYING TO PUSH FORWARD. WHEN I TOOK MY FOOT OFF THE BRAKE, THE CAR CONTINUED TO ACCELERATE EVEN THOUGH MY FEET WERE NOT TOUCHING ANY OF THE PEDALS. I TRIED PUTTING MY FOOT UNDER THE GAS PEDAL AND PULLING IT UP IN CASE IT HAD FROZEN IN A DEPRESSED POSITION, BUT IT WAS NOT FROZEN. THE PEDAL FREELY MOVED UP AND DOWN. WHEN I PUT THE CAR IN NEUTRAL, THE ENGINE RACED TO 7500 RPM WITHOUT MY FOOT ON THE GAS PEDAL (MY FEET WERE COMPLETELY OFF ALL PEDALS). I QUICKLY TURNED THE IGNITION OFF DRIFTED TO THE SHOULDER OF THE ROAD. I TOOK THE CAR IN TO BE LOOKED AT A SHOP THAT SPECIALIZES IN AUDI/VW CARS. THEY TOLD ME THAT THEY HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO REPLICATE THE PROBLEM, BUT THEY ARE AWARE THAT THERE ARE A HISTORY OF COMPLAINTS WITH AUDI CARS FOR UNINTENDED ACCELERATION. THEY BELIEVE THE PROBLEM IS IN THE THROTTLE BODY, WHICH CAN FREEZE IN COLD TEMPERATURES. ACCORDING THE MECHANIC, MOST REPORTED CASES INVOLVE COLD TEMPERATURES AND DRIVING LONG DISTANCES. I WAS DRIVING FOR ABOUT 40 MINUTES AND THE TEMPERATURE WAS ABOUT 5 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT. HE STATED THAT THERE WAS AN EARLIER RECALL ON THE A6 MODEL THAT HAD THE SAME THROTTLE BODY AS OURS, BUT WHEN WE CALLED THE DEALER THEY TOLD US THAT OURS HAD NO RECALL. THEY WILL TAKE A LOOK AT IT THIS WEEK. I AM VERY CONCERNED ABOUT THE SAFETY OF OUR VEHICLE. I HAVE COME ACROSS AN ENTRY ON A DISCUSSION BOARD WHERE SOMEONE REPORTED THE EXACT SAME INCIDENT WHILE DRIVING A 2007 A4. LUCKILY I WAS IN A RURAL AREA WHEN THE CAR ACCELERATED AND WAS ABLE TO PULL OFF TO THE SHOULDER WITHOUT ANY ACCIDENTS OR INJURIES. I AM AFRAID THIS COULD HAPPEN AGAIN AND CAUSE A MORE SERIOUS, MAYBE FATAL ACCIDENT. NOTE: PURCHASE DATE WAS ESTIMATED. EXACT INFORMATION IS IN THE CAR AT THE SHOP. *NM.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 100000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):WAUED28D2XA.

I HAVE READ THAT THIS IS AN ONGOING PROBLEM WITH THE A4 MODEL MANUFACTURED OVER THE COURSE OF SEVERAL YEARS, INCLUDING 1999, AND THAT THE CAM SEALS SHOULD LAST MUCH LONGER THAN 35,000 MILES.

SINCE THIS IS A PERSISTENT PROBLEM WITH MY VEHICLE, AND AS I'VE READ, MANY OTHER 1999 A4S, I ENCOURAGE THE NHTSA TO RESEARCH THIS CAM SEAL ENGINE DEFECT, AND ISSUE A DEFECT RECALL.

THE ABS MODULE ON MY VEHICLE HAS FAILED. THIS PROBLEM SEEMS TO BE QUITE PREVALENT AMONGST AUDI AND VW VEHICLES. AN ABS FAILURE COULD CAUSE ACCIDENTS AND DEATHS. THIS MODULE SHOULD BE RECALLED. THE PROBLEM BEGINS WITH THREE BEEPS, A SOLID YELLOW ABS LIGHT AND A FLASHING RED BRAKE LIGHT. THE WARNING MAY COME ON MOMENTARILY WHILE I AM DRIVING AND GO AWAY, BUT IN MOST CASES WILL BECOME MORE PREVALENT AS TIME GOES ON. SOMETIMES THE ABS AND BRAKE LIGHT REMAIN ON. OCCASIONALLY THE ABS ACTIVATED (IN OTHER WORDS ABS BRAKING HAS ACTIVATED) WHILE THE CAR IS IN MOTION. FROM RESEARCHING THIS PROBLEM, IT SEEMS TO BE COMMON WITH AUDI A4 AND VW PASSAT B5 MODELS. THE ABS WARNING LIGHT WILL COME ON EACH TIME THE VEHICLE IS OPERATED. THE SUDDEN ABS ACTIVATION WILL OCCUR RARELY. THE CONSEQUENCES OF SUDDEN ABS ACTIVATION IS OBVIOUS; BRAKING WHEN NOT EXPECTING IT CAN CAUSE TRAGIC RESULTS. LOSING THE ABS FUNCTIONALITY WHILE DRIVING AND WHEN IT IS NEEDED CAN ALSO CAUSE TRAGIC RESULTS. I TOOK MY CAR INTO THE SHOP. A VAG WAS HOOKED UP AND THE FOLLOWING CODE APPEARED: "01203 - ELECTRICAL CONNECTION BETWEEN ABS AND INSTRUMENT CLUSTER" REPLACING THE ELECTRICAL CONNECTION BETWEEN THE ABS AND INSTRUMENT CLUSTER WILL NOT SOLVE THE PROBLEM.

AUDI A4 1999 car safety problem was reported on June 10, 2009.AUDI A4 1999, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC . MY BRAKE LIGHT STARTED BEEPING AND FLASHING ONE DAY WHILE DRIVING. THE BEEPING AND FLASHING CONTINUED THROUGH THE NEXT COUPLE OF WEEKS. I TOOK MY CAR TO MY MECHANIC AND HE SAID I WOULD HAVE TO TAKE IT TO THE DEALER BECAUSE AUDI WON'T RELEASE THEIR SERVICE CODES. I CALLED THE DEALER AND ASKED WHAT WAS GOING ON. THE MECHANIC ASKED ME "WERE YOU DRIVING YOUR CAR IN THE RAIN?" I HAD QUITE A FEW SARCASTIC RESPONSES TO THE STUPID QUESTION BUT I JUST SAID, YEAH. I ASSUME A CAR IS ENGINEERED TO BE DRIVEN IN ALL CLIMATES INCLUDING, RAIN. A PRODUCT SHOULD BE DESIGNED TO PERFORM ITS INTENDED USE. NOT THE A4. WHO NEEDS AN ALL WHEEL DRIVE CAR IF THEY DON'T PLAN ON DRIVING IT THROUGH RAIN AND SNOW? THE MECHANIC TOLD ME THAT MY ABS CONTROL MODULE NEEDS TO BE REPLACED AND IT WOULD COST ME $1500. HE TOLD ME THAT MY ABS AND ALL WHEEL DRIVE WOULD NOT WORK PROPERLY UNTIL I FIX IT. I LIVE IN COLORADO AND I FREQUENTLY DRIVE THROUGH THE SNOW. I DRIVE THROUGH THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS IN ICY AND DANGEROUS CONDITIONS. LUCKILY, IT WAS SUMMER TIME WHEN MY MODULE WENT OUT. I TAKE MY LITTLE SISTERS, LITTLE BROTHERS, AND NEPHEWS SNOWBOARDING. I COULD HAVE BEEN SERIOUSLY INJURED OR KILLED OR I COULD HAVE SERIOUSLY INJURED OR KILLED SOMEONE ELSE BECAUSE I WAS DRIVING A VEHICLE THAT I THOUGHT HAD ABS, BUT DIDN'T. THERE IS A SLIM MARGIN FOR ERROR WHEN YOU ARE DRIVING ON SNOWY CURVES THROUGH THE MOUNTAINS. I COULD BE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE CLIFF BY THE TIME I REALIZE MY ABS WASN'T WORKING. OR I COULD SLIDE OVER A GROUP OF PEDESTRIANS. EVEN IF AUDI DOESN'T WANT TO PAY FOR THE REPAIRS, THEY SHOULD AT LEAST NOTIFY THEIR OWNERS THAT THIS IS A VERY COMMON PROBLEM THAT DRIVERS SHOULD BE AWARE OF. I WENT ONLINE AND I WAS NOT SURPRISED TO SEE THAT THOUSANDS OF OTHER PEOPLE HAD THE SAME PROBLEM.

I TOOK MY CAR TO MY MECHANIC AND HE SAID I WOULD HAVE TO TAKE IT TO THE DEALER BECAUSE AUDI WON'T RELEASE THEIR SERVICE CODES. I CALLED THE DEALER AND ASKED WHAT WAS GOING ON. THE MECHANIC ASKED ME "WERE YOU DRIVING YOUR CAR IN THE RAIN?" I HAD QUITE A FEW SARCASTIC RESPONSES TO THE STUPID QUESTION BUT I JUST SAID, YEAH. I ASSUME A CAR IS ENGINEERED TO BE DRIVEN IN ALL CLIMATES INCLUDING, RAIN. A PRODUCT SHOULD BE DESIGNED TO PERFORM ITS INTENDED USE. NOT THE A4. WHO NEEDS AN ALL WHEEL DRIVE CAR IF THEY DON'T PLAN ON DRIVING IT THROUGH RAIN AND SNOW? THE MECHANIC TOLD ME THAT MY ABS CONTROL MODULE NEEDS TO BE REPLACED AND IT WOULD COST ME $1500. HE TOLD ME THAT MY ABS AND ALL WHEEL DRIVE WOULD NOT WORK PROPERLY UNTIL I FIX IT. I LIVE IN COLORADO AND I FREQUENTLY DRIVE THROUGH THE SNOW. I DRIVE THROUGH THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS IN ICY AND DANGEROUS CONDITIONS. LUCKILY, IT WAS SUMMER TIME WHEN MY MODULE WENT OUT. I TAKE MY LITTLE SISTERS, LITTLE BROTHERS, AND NEPHEWS SNOWBOARDING. I COULD HAVE BEEN SERIOUSLY INJURED OR KILLED OR I COULD HAVE SERIOUSLY INJURED OR KILLED SOMEONE ELSE BECAUSE I WAS DRIVING A VEHICLE THAT I THOUGHT HAD ABS, BUT DIDN'T. THERE IS A SLIM MARGIN FOR ERROR WHEN YOU ARE DRIVING ON SNOWY CURVES THROUGH THE MOUNTAINS. I COULD BE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE CLIFF BY THE TIME I REALIZE MY ABS WASN'T WORKING. OR I COULD SLIDE OVER A GROUP OF PEDESTRIANS. EVEN IF AUDI DOESN'T WANT TO PAY FOR THE REPAIRS, THEY SHOULD AT LEAST NOTIFY THEIR OWNERS THAT THIS IS A VERY COMMON PROBLEM THAT DRIVERS SHOULD BE AWARE OF. I WENT ONLINE AND I WAS NOT SURPRISED TO SEE THAT THOUSANDS OF OTHER PEOPLE HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. AUDI DID ABSOLUTELY NOTHING EXCEPT OFFER TO REPAIR THE BROKEN MODULE FOR FULL PRICE. *TR .Mileage was 75000 miles. Audi A4 1999 problem was reported in DENVER, CO.

AUDI A4 1999 car safety problem was reported on May 16, 2008.AUDI A4 1999, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with TIRES . TREAD SEPARATION. I WAS DRIVING WESTBOUND ON I-580, APPROXIMATELY 70 MPH, WHEN THE TREAD ON MY RIGHT FRONT TIRE SEPARATED AND THE TIRE BLEW. I WAS LUCKY TO BE ABLE TO PULL OVER TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD, WITH THE ASSISTANCE OF OTHER AWARE DRIVERS ON THE HIGHWAY WHO ALLOWED ME TO CHANGE LANES AT A REDUCED SPEED. THE TIRE TREAD DAMAGED THE RIGHT FRONT AREA OF MY CAR, CAUSING APPROXIMATELY $4,000 IN DAMAGES, OF WHICH APPROXIMATELY $3,000 WAS COVERED BY MY INSURANCE COMPANY. THE MOST IMPORTANT ISSUE IS SAFETY, NOT MONEY. I COULD HAVE BEEN SEVERELY INJURED OR KILLED AS A RESULT OF THE TIRE FAILURE. THE TIRE HAD A BIG O TIRES BRAND LABEL BUT IT WAS MANUFACTURED BY COOPER. BEFORE THE INCIDENT, THERE WAS NO ABNORMAL USAGE OR WEAR ON THE TIRE, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF ACCELERATED WEAR AT THE PLACE WHERE THE TREAD SEPARATION INITIATED, WHICH WAS CAUSED BY THE SEPARATION. COOPER MIGHT BE THE ONLY TIRE MANUFACTURER THAT DOES NOT USE A BELT WEDGE. THEIR HISTORY OF TREAD SEPARATIONS AND TIRE FAILURES, AND TOTAL DISREGARD FOR THE SAFETY OF THEIR AMERICAN CUSTOMERS SHOULD BE SUFFICIENT TO REMOVE THEIR PRIVILEGE OF DOING BUSINESS IN THE U.S. *TR.Mileage was 118563 miles.
