Sudden acceleration!!!
By BG on


2006 Audi A4 1.8T 2dr Convertible (1.8L 4cyl Turbo CVT)


I was stopped by a light ready to make a left turn, foot on the brake-car in drive as always. Suddenly the engine started to re to what seemed like the redline. Brakes barely held so I immediately put the car into neutral and stepped on the accelerator to quiet the engine. It worked but I just missed hitting the car in front by about 2 feet. Had it flatbedded to Audi who (even after a technician came) couldn't find anything wrong. If it happened once it will happen again. No carpet issue. I love this car and wish they would have found something. Reported to nhtsa who will investigate. Happen to anyone else? This is a major accident waiting to happen. Be very careful my friends.

Best Features

I "loved" the car until now.Great fit and finish. Very comfortable.

Worst Features

This happened to AUDI in the 80's and they almost went bankrupt.They HAVE to find the cause. Strange how it happened the same month as the Toyota mess.Audi are you listening?
