problem #1

  • 115,110 miles
Rear coil springs failed at 114000 miles- cracked in half, fronts probably next. Vehicle's life has been in the northeast subject to heavy use of road salt; seems spring composition similar to the brake rotors and coil springs on Ford products that prompted a similar recall. An issue like this isn't expected from Audi, and is disappointing.
