2004 Audi A4 1.8T Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
I am looking at $1500-2000 of repairs
to my gas tank,wheel lining and shock
absorber, not to mention the
replacement tire,which was $180,
because I had a flat tire on this
vehicle at 2389 miles. To my dismay,
neither the dealership, nor Audi of
America, will stand behind their
vehicle and cover any of this cost. I
apparently had a leaking gas tank for
several days before the "check engine"
light alerted me to a potential problem.
It would seem that the design of this
automobile should address the severe
damage that apparently can be caused on
this car from a flat tire. It makes me
concerned about my safety.
I don't have any. I feel unsafe in the
car and any pleasure I take in driving
it is erased by this fact.
First, Audi should make their filler
line and gas tank two parts, so it
doesn't cost $800 to replace when any
part of either is damaged. Secondly,
they should get rid of "low profile
tires". They blow when punctured with
almost no warning. Third, they should
stand behind their product.
