Can anyone please tell me if $1100 sounds fair for replacement of tie-rods and front left axel on an Audi A4 (year 2000)? Took 'er in for winterization and looksee today. Different repair show than I typically use. Moving to New England next month and want car to be up to the task. I was surprised to hear the tie rod ends were loose and falling apart and axel on front left side was bad. Does this quote seem fair (it includes alignment)? thanks!

my b6 s4 has been taking a long time to start in cold weather when i turn key the car does nothing all the normal ligts appear on the dash but the motor does not turn over. and after about a minute or so of turning key on then off it finally starts this only happens when cold . I just put a new battery in yesterday and its still doing it .

If I have a maintenance schedule and contract then the service is free. Also the dealer has all the parts how can the independent be less? Also does time go into play and a loaner???? My time is important. I think this needs some clarification

I have a 1998 Audi A6 Quattro and have been having problems but can't figure it out! My car died out a few months ago and I assumed it was either the Alternator and/or battery since I have a sound system installed. *The sound system has been in for close to a year before this problem started. However, my battery is still new fairly new, just not sure if it has taken a beating from my sound system... A friend of mine told me that when I jump start my car I could test my alternator by taking off the positive and negative wires from the battery. If it dies out it is the battery, if it stays running it is not the battery. When I did that, the car stayed running so I assume it is not the alternator. Not too sure if that is 100% guaranteed though.

So I jump started the car and it started right up. I drove it around for a few hours. Came home, turned off the car, waited for about 6 hours. When I went to start the car last night (after sitting for 6 hours) it started right up again, my girlfriend drove it for about an hour or so with no problems. The next morning (today) we went to start the car and it started just fine. My girlfriend was driving to work and when she went to check the mail, she turned off the car. When she came back to start the car it didn't start! So she had her dad come down and jump start the car. It started with no problems, then they drove it to his house to park it. Waiting for a diagnosis...

Any input / suggestions would be helpful.

Battery? Alternator? Or a short in the electrical somewhere?

Hello just recently my A6 from take off felt sluggish when first driving off. It fills as if I had the parking brake on when starting to drive off. Then as I build up speed it fills normal. Also on the instrument panel the selecter parking, drive and neautrul indicator does not show the position when car put in drive or any other position. It has been highlighted behind the letters. Does anyone have and idea ?

My speedometer is not working and the ABS/TRAC lights are on. These three things are all connected; occassionally they all work, but only for about 10 minutes. The check engine light is also on. Audi replaced speed sensor as well another sensor they thought was causing the check engine light. Did not work. They also checked the connections; did not work. Now they are recommending replacing the ABS control module ($2100). Is this really the problem?

So i let my buddy borrow by '01 TT Quattro for a night. When he brought it back the next day I started it up and could smell hot/burning clutch. I depress the clutch and it feels normal but when the engine is running it will not go into gear. When the engine is off however it will. So the clutch is not disengaging in order to put it in gear. What would cause this problem along with the burning smell. Is it something minor like the clutch master cylinder is messed up or is it worse than that?
