Front brakes have issues from the beginning with brand new tires from the dealer. Dealer changed all tires with brand new tires again and brake pads for front brakes six months ago. Vehicle makes noise when i push brake. Vehicle is now with the dealer and they are trying to figure out. This is not at all acceptable being a $80k vehicle. Audi should discontinue these defective vehicles and refund the money. This is also a road hazard and risky issue to drive. This is a major safety issue.

I had the pods recall 19v47400 done and noticed about 2 months ago that the airbag light came on saying audi pre sense system fault, and safety system: system fault, where the passenger seat will think someone is in it and then when someone is in it, the airbag will stay off and occasionally come on but turn back off quickly after, all while the airbag light and errors stay on the dash

While on the road, on the first month of driving the car august/september 2019, the car slowed down to 2-5 mph with a note on the dash screen to call service. I crawled the car to the side of the road. Gas pedal and breaks not working, pulling the emergency park button to stop the car. Immediately brought to audi service in fairfield ct for diagnostic and found nothing. Early november 2020 this has happen yet again in the middle of a stop light but this time the whole engine/car died with the ignition for 2 minutes. With my hazard lights on, i continued to start the car several times until it starts. Unfortunately, i do not feel safe in my car and audi services are not helping/cannot find the issue. It now has happen multiple times. Will i be dead next time is what goes through my mind.
