Does 2005 Audi A4 need a recall?

Vehicle2005 Audi A4 New 2.0T Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo CVT)
ReviewAt 70,000 miles, I had to replace the transmission. I'm now at about 85,000 miles and am being told the turbo is failing and that the cost to repair will be in the $2,000 range. If I make that repair, I will have spent about as much as the car is worth today on just two repairs. In doing some searches, it looks like to me that Audi has a transmission issue in these cars. (Haven't seen the same complaints about the turbo, but I haven't looked a lot either.) Sent Audi a letter about my issues and didn't even get a reply. I now tell everyone who asks that I wouldn't recommend an Audi unless you ONLY care how the car looks and drives (when it drives).
Best FeaturesCar is nice to look at, comfortable to drive, has great storage options inside the car and the trunk. Gets pretty good gas mileage. Stereo sounds great.
Worst FeaturesHow about a transmission that lasts more than 100,000 miles? That seems to be pretty common these days. How about a company that has the courtesy to respond to customer letters?
