Audi Complaint - 2010 Audi Water Pump Failure
Buyer Beware - We leased a new 2010 Audi A-6 last January and were devastated to have our water pump fail after only 6000 miles!! To make matters worse, the failure occurred while we were almost 100 miles from our home dealer, occurred suddenly such that we had to pull off the road quickly under dangerous conditions and required the car to be flatbeded to a repair facility. If this turned out to be a random failure, no problem. I can understand that this could happen once in a while. But it turns out not to be a random failure - the flatbed truck driver told us he had seen "several new Audis with failed water pumps that week!! This is a systemic failure of the part and Audi has not had the courtesy to notify by mail all owners of cars with the problem pump. Not the kind of company I will ever deal with again.
