I am having so many problems with my 2003 A6 2.7T, I could never recommend an Audi of any year to anyone, not even to an enemy. The car has had problems since 1200 miles and as of today (the dealer still has the car), it only has 20,000 miles on it. The car has been to the service department for 15 different problems, some of them major. The valve cover gaskets were leaking oil onto the manifold(possible cause of fire) and smoking badly, the turbos blew the day I picked the car up from that repair(my mechanic told me it was quite probable the service tech dropped something into the open head and it travelled down to the turbo, thereby ruining the turbo). They had it 13 days, then another 14 days because the car wasn't running properly. I drove it a week, and the alternator went, causing the battery to drain. The dealer just called to state the starter just seized as they were going to call me to pick the car up. I have spoken to corporate many times and they insist on repairing this LEMON. I suggested they replace the vehicle with a new model for the remainder of my lease, but NOOOOOO! They choose to stonewall me instead. DON'T DO IT!!!!! DON'T BUY AN AUDI!!!!!! IT'S THE WORST CAR I HAVE EVER DRIVEN. YOU'LL BE SORRY!!!!!!!!

My 2000 2.7T 's airbag light comes on occasionally. The system is "airbag and seatbelt tensioners", though. I found each time that it was a rear seatbealt that needed a jiggle.

#466 of 1407 "Heat Damaged" front Rotors
Jul 12, 2005 (11:29 am)
My 2002 Audi A6 was pulsating and the steering wheel would shake when I had to slow down or stop. I brought it to the dealership and they said that the break pads in the front had about 5000 miles left on them but that the front rotors were blue from heat damage. I was informed that break pads were covered under warranty but that rotors were not and to replace them would cost $440.00. I contacted Audi Consumer Complaints and was told that the dealership followed procedure and that the rotors are not covered under warranty. Has anyone had the same problem? Any suggestions on how to get Audi to cover the repair?

I have the same "airbag light on" problem on my 20000 A6 2.7T. Thanks for the tip, will try playing with the rear seatbelts.

I can't believe what you were told. My pads and rotors were changed by the dealer during the free 50K service period. I'd go to another dealer maybe, but if you consulted Audi Customer Service and received that answer, perhaps I was lucky then.

I could see the rotor not being covered (though BMW does cover it in their service program). However, with the excessive heating from the pads, you have an argument that some defect in the brake system led to the excessive heat. This defect caused the rotors to run hotter than normal and led to the warping.
Be civil, polite, and professional. It gets you a lot further. Let them know you understand their position, but emphasize that you wouldn't be asking for this if they had been wearing normally. This situation definitely sounds like abnormal wear.
