AUGUST 25, 2020 TRAVELING WB ON I-90 [MASS TURNPIKE] PASSING AND 18 WHEEL TRACTOR TRAILER WITH AN UNMARKED WHITE BOX TRAILER. TRUCK 'WEAVED' TO THE LEFT INTO MY DRIVING LANE AS I WAS OVERTAKING IT. I SWERVED TO THE LEFT TO AVOID CONTACT OF MY 2019 Audi A6 PREMIUM PLUS AT ABOUT THE A PILLAR AND THE REAR WHEEL AREA OF THE BOX TRAILER. IN MY EVASIVE ACTION THE CAR'S LANE KEEPING ASSISTANT ACTIVATED AS I WAS ABOUT TO CROSS THE LINES ON MY LEFT SIDE TO AVOID THE TRUCK, THE CAR TOOK CONTROL OF THE STEERING AND AGGRESSIVELY STEERING THE CAR BACK AT THE TRACTOR TRAILER. I BRAKED THE CAR AS HARD I COULD TO AVOID COLLISION WITH THE BOX TRAILER. NONE OF THE COLLISION WARNING SYSTEM ACTIVATED AND THE CAR'S SENSORS AND CAMERAS DID NOT RECOGNIZE THAT I WAS TRYING TO AVOID A HIGH SPEED COLLISION WITH THE TRACTOR TRAILER. I BROUGHT THE CAR TO THE DEALERSHIP [AUDI ALBANY, LATHAM NY] AFTER RETURN FROM MY TRIP TO HAVE SAFETY SYSTEMS CHECKED. NO FAULT CODES WERE DETECTED.
On january 16, 2020, i was driving on a local street and started slowing down for a stop sign. I had forgotten to turn off the auto start/stop switch as is my usual practice, so i deactivated it before stopping. When i hit the switch, i got an error message telling me the cruise control was no longer available, the engine warning light came on, and the motor started shuddering. As i tried to pull away from the stop sign, the car wouldn't accelerate more than 7 mph. Towed to dealer. They are trying to track the fault. I have also had problems with the lane keeping detection system since i bought the car in august, 2020. The system is supposed to come on automatically when the vehicle is started. Half the time it doesn't come on when started; other times, when making multiple stops during a day's driving, it comes on at random times. Some days it never comes on. Other days it comes on each time. Dealer can't find fault. Turning it on manually doesn't guarantee that it'll turn on the next time you start the vehicle.
