WE HAVE A 2005 AUDI A6 PURCHASED CPO IN 06. WE RECENTLY HAD ISSUES WITH BRAKE MODULE ISSUES THAT ARE STILL THERE BUT WAITING ON THE RECALL FOR THIS ISSUE. NOW WE HAVE AN ISSUE WITH OUR MMI SYSTEM WHICH IS THE ENTERTAINMENT PART OF THE CAR. IT CONTROLS THE MUSIC, NAVIGATION, AND SOME CONVIENCE FEATURES. I HAVE SEEN A LOT OF AUDI OWNERS WITH THIS MMI PROBLEM AS WELL. THERE SEEMS TO BE A TREND WITH AUDI VEHICLES NOW. I WOULD THINK WHEN YOU MAKE A LUXURY PURCHASE SUCH AS THIS YOU WOULD NOT HAVE THESE KINDS OF ISSUES. CERTAINLY IF YOU ARE NOT ABUSING THE CAR IN ANY WAY. THIS ALSO NEEDS TO BE A PART OF A RECALL. THE FIRST INDICATION WAS I COULD NOT RESET THE BATTERY AFTER THE REPLACEMENT WHICH WAS NOT DONE BY AUDI. THEN I TOOK IT TO THEM TO RESET THE BATTERY LEVEL AND RECODE THE MMI AND AUDI COULD NOT DO IT? THERE IS AN ISSUE HERE....

ON OUR 2005 AUDI A6 WE PURCHASED CERTIFIED PRE-OWNED (CPO) WE ARE THE SECOND OWNERS OF THE VEHICLE. WHEN WE PURCHASED THIS A6 IT HAD ONLY 30,330 MILES. WHEN WE GOT TO AROUND 90K+ MILES IS WHEN WE STARTED TO HAVE SOME ISSUES WITH THE CARS BRAKING SYSTEM. WE TOOK IT TO AUDI WHICH IS THE ONLY PLACE WE HAVE HAD IT SERVICED AND WHERE WE PURCHASED THE VEHICLE. THEY SAID THERE WAS A PROBLEM WITH THE BRAKE MODULE CAUSING THE BLINKING BRAKE LIGHT AND THE ABS LIGHT TO COME ON ALONG WITH A LOUD BEEPING FROM TIME TO TIME. THEY THOUGHT IT COULD ALSO BE LOW ON BRAKE FLUID AND CAPPED IT OFF. THE PROBLEM WENT AWAY FOR A WHILE BUT THEN CAME BACK ALONG WITH THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT. THIS TIME IT WAS SAID WE HAVE A FAULT ECU MODULE. WE HAD THIS SERVICE DONE WHICH COSTS $2,200.USD BUT THIS WAS JUST TO REPAIR THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT BUT NOT THE BRAKE MODULE. WE ASKED IF THIS REPAIR WOULD RESOLVE BOTH ISSUES AND THE ANSWER WAS YES. THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF COMPLAINTS ABOUT THE BOSCH BRAKE MODULE WHICH SEEMS TO BE AN ONGOING PROBLEM WITH AUDI. THIS NEEDS TO BE RECALLED AND EVERYONE GET THEIR MONEY REFUNDED TO THEM FOR THE PAIN AND ANGUISH THIS HAS CAUSED. THERE ALSO NEEDS TO BE A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT AGAINST AUDI!!

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.
