I am glad your having a great experience with your Audi but telling us all about the compliments you get on it is hardly any indication of anything. I get compliments all the time on my TL and Maxima.
Don't get me wrong, Audi has a nice service department, but let me know when they have their own car wash, massaging leather chairs in their waiting room, come to your house to pick up your vehicle/leave a loaner, free food other than snacks (sandwiches, hot foods, etc) when your in for service, 1 yr subscription to Sat radio included, free maintenance for the first 3 or 4 years, etc. Those are the things Lexus, BMW, and MB are offering. That is why they are not in their level yet.
The way your talk, is sounds like no Japanese or American vehicle is any good because they all look alike. I suppose German vehicles are only acceptable

I’m absolutely in agreement with you. I had my 2003 A6 for three years with no issues other than the aluminum trim around the windows turning amber. Customer service was good. The car was returned clean the techs always covered up the seats and floor before driving the car. My experience with ACURA has been miserable. You are treated like they are doing you a favor. You get a “free” car wash, and the car is returned to you filthy. After 6 month of battling interior rattles and 21 days in the repair shop ACURA/HONDA states that under the warranty section 8. Rattles are not considered an issue that impairs the function and the drivability of the vehicle. It must be OK for a $44K to rattle as long as it drives
The driving experience is highly diminished by the combination of inferior quality, lousy service and lack of customer support.

Update to squeaks and rattles issues in my 2007 TL - I replaced my OEM tires with Continental DSWs and then took a 2 week trip from Texas to Florida. The difference in ride was significant - the DSWs were much quieter and absorbed a lot more road vibration than the OEM Michelans. Pretty much no issues with interior rattles and squeaks during the two week trip. Still none for the week we've been back in Texas. Will have to wait for winter to see if this holds for cold weather as well.
#18 of 18 2006 Acura TL under carriage squeaking
Nov 30, 2011 (3:33 pm)
I have an Acura 2006 TL that has a squeaking noise evertime you step on the gas or brake. It appears to be something under the shift console. Possibly something like a stabalization bar or frame issue coming from the under carriage. Anyone else have this issue or have any suggestions?
