TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: WE ARE A GROUP OF OWNERS WHO BOUGHT THE AUDI ALLROAD 2.7 QUATTRO WITH THE TIPTRONIC TRANSMISSION. WE ARE WRITING TO REPORT A PROBLEM RELATED TO THE TIPTRONIC SYSTEM. WE HAVE NOTICED SIGNIFICANT HESITATION WHEN WE LAUNCH THE CAR FROM A STOP. WHEN THE CAR IS COMPLETELY STOPPED, AND THE DRIVER STEPS ON THE GAS PEDAL, A LAG OF 1-3 SECONDS IS OBSERVED. WITHIN THIS TIME RANGE, THE CAR JUST IDLES AS-IS WITHOUT MOVING FORWARD. THE SAME PROBLEM HAPPENS WHEN THE DRIVER ATTEMPTS TO ACCELERATE FROM 10-30. USING THE S MODE (IF EQUIPPED) DOESN'T COMPLETELY FIX THIS PROBLEM. WE CONSIDER THIS TO BE A SAFETY HAZARD FOR BOTH ALLROAD DRIVERS AND OTHER PEOPLE ON THE ROAD. A COMMON SCENARIO IS THAT WHEN A DRIVER ATTEMPTS TO MERGE ONTO A MAIN ROAD, AN INTERSECTION OR FREEWAY AND ANTICIPATES SMOOTH ACCELERATION, NOTHING HAPPENS AND THE CAR IS PRONE TO BEING REAR-ENDED OR SANDWICHED. WE UNDERSTAND THAT THIS PROBLEM ONLY OCCURS IN CARS EQUIPPED WITH THE TIPTRONIC TRANSMISSION. IN ADDITION, THIS PROBLEM IS NOT SPECIFIC TO THE ALLROAD, BUT ALSO OTHER AUDI MODELS WITH THE TIPTRONIC TRANSMISSION. WE CONCLUDE THAT THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE "TURBO LAG" OF THE 2.7T ENGINE AS SOME DEALERS INCLINE TO BELIEVE. WE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF AUDI HAS ANY SOLID PLAN TO ALLEVIATE THIS PROBLEM WHICH IS BOTH ANNOYING AND DANGEROUS. THANK YOU FOR YOUR ATTENTION TO THIS MATTER.
