The Cabriolet convertible top mechanism can fail due to hydraulic fluid leaks. The fluid reservoir is a common failure.

An engine misfire may develop from one or more cylinders resulting in a loss of power and illumination of the Check Engine Light. Our technicians tell us that ignition coil failure is a common cause for this concern. On high mileage vehicles it may be wise to consider replacing all of the ignition coils if one fails to try and avoid future misfire issues on another cylinder.

A lack of power may be noted and the Check Engine Light illuminated with various throttle system fault codes stored. Our technicians tell us this is generally caused by electrical connection issues at the throttle body. If this is the case a harness repair kit is available from Audi.

Break light switch becomes inoperable, causing ABS and No traction control light come on, causing brake lights to stay on even with the engine shut off and car locked (as if someone is stepping on the brake pedal). Problem corrected by replacing the brake light switch (located in the driver's side compartment, above the brake pedal).

Various bushings—located around the subframe, suspension, and steering—deteriorate with age. A clunking noise when driving over bumps, accelerating, or stopping may be a sign of worn bushings.

Our technicians recommend having the constant velocity (CV) boots and CV joints inspected at each service. Servicing torn CV boots early can prevent the need to replace the CV half shaft or CV joint.

Oil leaks can develop in the crankcase ventilation hoses, in between the cylinder banks.

The water pump may fail resulting in engine overheating and possible timing belt damage. Overheating and/or timing belt failure can result in very expensive engine repairs. As a precaution, it is recommended to inspect the timing belt and water pump at regular intervals.
