AUDI 2005 A6 STARTED TO HAVE INTERMITTENT WARNING FOR ABS, STABILITY, HAND BRAKE AT ~55K MILES. TOOK CAR TO DEALER TO DIAGNOSE IT . DEALER CALLED WITH AN ESTIMATE OF $2800 TO REPLACE ABS MODULE. HE ALSO PROVIDED AN ESTIMATE OF $1100 FOR ANOTHER ERROR CODE FOR AIRBAG TO REPLACE THE CENTER REAR SEAT BELT. I'M NOT UNDERSTANDING WHY THESE WARNING CODES COME SO RANDOMLY AND CLEAR SO RANDOMLY. NOT SURE WHY AN AUDI A6 WILL NEED SUCH REPAIRS THAT CLEARLY POINT TO FLAWS IN DESIGN AND UNRELIABLE PARTS AFTER ONLY 55K MILES. THERE ARE TONS FOR ONLINE COMPLAINTS FROM AUDI DRIVERS THAT USE THE BOSCH 8.0 ABS MODULE. AUDI SHOULD EITHER RECALL THIS PART OR OFFER TO PAY FOR THE REPAIRS. WHEN I COMPLAINED TO AUDI USA, BASICALLY THEY ASKED IF I WAS FIRST OWNER AND IF I TAKE IT TO DEALER FOR MAINTENANCE. THE ANSWERS FOR BOTH IS NO. I'M THE 2ND DRIVER. BOUGHT THE CAR WITH ONLY 20K MILES AND SINCE RELOCATING TO HOUSTON, I TAKE THE CAR TO A LOCAL GARAGE FOR OIL CHANGE. I'M LOOKING FOR SAFECAR.GOV TO RECTIFY THE ISSUE WITH AUDI. AUDI DOESN'T EVEN SELL THE ABS MODULE PART ALONE. YOU WILL HAVE TO BUY THE BRAKE PUMP AS WELL.

2005 AUDI A6 HAS WATER DAMAGE. SOME HOW OVER NIGHT HEAVY RAIN SEEPAGE LEFT AN INCH OF WATER BEHIND DRIVER SEAT. CAR WAS PARKED IN DRIVEWAY. ALL WINDOWS AND DOORS WHERE CLOSED. THIS HAS CAUSED $10,000.00 ELECTRICAL DAMAGE TO MODULES LOCATED UNDER FRONT PASSENGER SEAT. THESE MODULES ALERT ME ABOUT ESP/ABS AND PARK BRAKE AS WELL AS A MODULE THAT POWERS THE VEHICLES MMI/NAVIGATION AND STEREO SYSTEM. NONE OF THESE FUNCTION ANY LONGER. INSURANCE COMPANY WANTS TO TOTALED THE VEHICLE,I SPENT $7000.00 ALREADY ON REPAIRING THE VEHICLE. DON'T KNOW WHERE THE WATER ENTERED MY VEHICLE. IS AUDI RESPONSIBLE? THIS APPEARS TO BE A DESIGN FLAW.

I WAS DRIVING MY CAR IN MY WORK PARKING LOT WHEN A LOUD BEEP OCCURRED AND MY CAR ISSUED A WARNING FOR "PARKING BREAK MALFUNCTION." TWO LIGHTS, ESC AND ABS ALSO LIT UP WHEN THE BEEP SOUNDED. I IMMEDIATELY STOPPED DRIVING, ENGAGED THE PARKING BRAKE (WHICH WORKED) AND DISENGAGED IT. I AM THE SECOND OWNER OF THE CAR AND AFTER SOME RESEARCH FOUND THAT THE BRAKE MODULE AND MMI BOTH HAD BEEN UPGRADED BY THE PREVIOUS OWNER. I CONTINUED TO WITNESS THESE SYMPTOMS AND AM WAITING FOR MY DEALERSHIP TO RUN A DIAGNOSTIC. I HAVE READ ENOUGH CONSUMER COMPLAINTS ABOUT THIS SPECIFIC PROBLEM TO KNOW THAT AUDI SHOULD TAKE A DEEPER LOOK INTO IT.
