145 vehicles were assembled with a seam at the clutch that was not welded to specifications. This could lead to degraded performance of the clutch inside the gearbox. As a result, the clutch could fail without warning, disabling the vehicle and increasing the risk of a crash. This recall began on April 30, 2004. The Audi recall number is JA.
The rear track control arm bushings may corrode, which can restrict proper movement of the track control arms. This can lead to handling issues. Dealers will replace the rear track control arms.
