problem #1

The 2008 through 2010 models are prone to experiencing structural failure of the frame (I.e. cracking) near the front strut tower. This problem appears to affect a large number of R8S manufactured during this period and presents a potential safety issue. Audi has tacitly acknowledged the issue being from a design flaw by reinforcing the frame in that area on 2011 and subsequent models. I am frankly surprised has not been action to force Audi to correct the problem on these models by the NHTSA already. Here is a link to a discussion of the problem. www.R8talk.com/forums/60-maintenance-service/10169-structural-failure-warning-8.html
