2000 Audi A6 Owner Comments

problem #2

Dec 312002

A6 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 52,000 miles


Audi A-6 yr 2000 while driving the car my husband eyes became irritated, smelt something burning, shortly after, smoke blew-out from the left air vent into the car and then fire sparks. As the car was moving, he noticed the smoke, slowed down, forced the gear into park and dash out of car. The fire spread from the front to the rear of the vehicle, causing an estimated $22,000 loss which is a total loss. The Georgia, dekalb county fire services - incident report num. 02-049367 which was examined by the fire chief clearly state the area of fire origin came from operating, control area (fues box) and form of material ignited was electrical wire (faulty wiring). Our insurance company is now investigating and has also determined a total loss. Called Audi corporate and filed a complaint about this total financial loss and our concern of faulty wiring that can possibly cause death or bodily injury to other car occupants, without any prior warning. Audi has not called us back and has not taken any action as of 13 days after the incident. Luckily my husband escaped this fire hazard car, but will someone else be as lucky.
