TIRES: SIDEWALL

5/3/2004 - RYE BROOK, NY
I NOW DRIVE AN AUDI A6 WITH PIRELLI P/6 TIRES. I HAVE HAD 5 BLOW-OUTS IN THE PAST 19 MONTHS. THE SIDEWALLS ARE EITHER PAPER THIN OR NON-EXISTENT. I HAVE BEEN DRIVING FOR OVER 40 YEARS AND HAVEN'T HAD 5 FLAT TIRES IN THAT TIME. THESE TIRES ARE DANGEROUS AND SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO BE PUT ON CARS THAT DRIVE ON REGULAR STREETS. I HAVE NOTIFIED THE DEALER" NEW COUNTRY AUDI OF GREENWICH, CT. THE SALES MANAGER SAID "DIDN'T THE SALESPERSON TELL YOU YOU HAD TO BE CAREFUL WITH THESE TIRES?" WHAT KIND OF AN ANSWER IS THAT?

POWER TRAIN: AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION: CONTROL MODULE (TCM, PCM)

10/17/2003 - PARKER, CO
FAILURE TO ACCELERATE. I EXPERIENCE MAJOR DELAYS IN ANY ACCELERATION IMMEDIATELY AFTER I HAVE DEPRESSED THE BRAKE (AT ANY SPEED) AND THEN TRY TO REACCELERATE. I UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS A COMMON COMPLAINT AMONG ALL AUDI TIPTRONIC OWNERS REGARDLESS OF ENGINE TYPE. IT IS NOT, AS AUDI TRIES TO SAY, "TURBO LAG." IN ALMOST EVERY FAILURE TO DATE, I HAVE ALMOST BEEN INVOLVED IN AN ACCIDENT DUE TO THIS PROBLEM. HAD OTHER DRIVERS BEEN LESS ATTENTIVE, I MOST SURELY WOULD HAVE BEEN STRUCK. I AM HESITANT TO PULL OUT INTO ANY VOLUME OF TRAFFIC WITH THIS PERSISTENT PROBLEM.
