A4 6-cyl

  • 97,000 miles
Hi. I have a 1998 Audi A4 6 cylinder quatro5 speed. It has 97K miles. The ABS light has come on and I understand that it is a common failure. Approx. $1700 repair at the dealer. I understand that VW has had a recall for exactly the same issue with exactly the same part. It seems like such a recall should extend the Audi using the same part, which has a high failure rate. It seems to be a very serious safety issue and should be recalled and repaired by Audi. Can you help me understand why a part and safety issue would be recalled for VW but not for Audi? here is a link to further information: Thanks!
