While driving on the highway, there was a message that flashed on the dashboard about the coolant system, within a couple minutes, I felt like the car was shutting down while going 65 miles per hour. So I pulled over on the shoulder of the Turnpike Southbound in Miami. This cased a great safety problem for me, as this happened while I was driving on the highway then I had to be on the right shoulder of the highway and had to call for road ranger. When the road ranger came to inspect the car, he tried to add coolant and realized that there was a fuel leak, the car would not start, the coolant drained completely out of the car. I then had to call AAA to get the car towed.

My vehicle is leaking coolant. Every 8-10K miles it goes below normal level in reservoir. There is a distinct odor of coolant each time I get out of the vehicle. I have had Audi look at it 5 times. They confirm the coolant levels are low and they refill it saying they can't find a leak. I am concern that this is a fire hazard.

The contact owns a 2017 Audi A4. The contact stated that the ac began to blow hot air. The dashboard was removed to replace the sensor used for releasing cold air. Then while driving approximately 65 mph, the transmission warning system activated and informed the contact that they would have to use the paddles to steer the vehicle. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer (Audi fort lauderdale - sales department 1200 N federal hwy, fort lauderdale, fl 33304; (954) 545-4650) who removed the console to replace the transmission. The third issue was that the vehicle had failed to start. The certified mechanic towed the vehicle due to connector function to start the vehicle. The vehicle was returned the vehicle to the dealer who stated that the communication between key and starter had failed and the device that provided this function was replaced. The fourth issue was that while driving approximately 60 mph when the transmission suddenly failed. The contact restarted the vehicle and took the vehicle to the dealer by steering the vehicle using the paddles as suggested before. The manufacturer was made aware of the issue and opened a case regarding the matter. The contact was then referred back to the dealer. The matter had not been resolved. The failures ad reoccurred. The contact stated that all failures had occurred in a total of a 1,100 miles time frame. The approximate failure mileage was 25, 700.
