I don't have any faith in audi anymore. Have a 2006 1.8 A4 and the transmission is a nightmare for performance. In the shop 4 times in 8,000 miles and still can't be fix because it is "within Audi specs". We have had almost 4 wrecks in the car and caused a wreck by the poor performance in traffic. Audi could care less about the customer they have your money so go play somewhere else. I have a lawyer working on a possible lawsuit against Audi to get out of this death trap. I was once a fan and owned several Audis but never again.

I had the same problem and found out what it was the hard way! The bottom ball bearing joint that hold your rotor has leaked and so there is no lubricant to keep the metals from rubbing. Replacing it would have cost me $1300 but my mechanic had my warranty pay for it. If they would not have covered it my other option would have been to get another joint from a junk yard to keep the cost down. Change it soon because it will surprise you one day and fall to the concrete and could cause you to get into an accident.
#1605 of 2367 2003 Audi a4 3.0 with transmission issues HELP!
Aug 28, 2007 (3:25 pm)
I recently bought a used 2003 Audi a4 3.0 (my first one after selling my old Toyota). It still had a few months on the warranty so I figured I was safe. I bought it, took it to the dealership and asked them to run a full check. I honestly think they did nothing to tell you the truth. A few weeks after I did this the car started "bouncing" or "jerking" when I start the car and take it from Park to Reverse. I immediatly have to rip it back into park to get the "bouncing" of the engine to stop. I took it to the dealership and once again the computer diagnostic says nothing. Now I can be driving the car on the highway and the engine in Drive will just flip back and forth into Neutral and I can lose gas power. The light across the (P,D, N) strip on the dash will jump to all being red.
Now my car has been in over 3 times, has 40K, the warranty has run out, I've paid to run diagnostics, and still nothing is coming up. Someone please HELP! What can I do? They refuse to admit anything is wrong if the "computer diagnostic" has no errors.
