Unsafe Transmission
By ed sokolofski on


2006 Audi A4 3.2 Avant quattro 4dr Wagon AWD (3.1L 6cyl 6A)


Owned an Audi 5000CS during the unintended acceleration scare years. Fun to drive but a nightmare with repairs. Waited all these years to buy an Audi A4 wagon. Great design and overall build. However, had to have it towed after it died in the middle of an intersection. Supposed bad fuel pump sensor. Under warranty. Much bigger problem is the transmission (new design) that hesitates between 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Hesitates so long that it is unsafe when pulling out into traffic, etc. Dealer said it's the nature of the beast and to change the way I drive. Can't wait to return car. Luckily, I only have 9 months left on lease. Feels unsafe to drive. Take a long test drive before you buy.

Best Features

Exterior design (except grille) and inside design/execution.

Worst Features

Unsafe transmission must be fixed.
